I have a small/average size garden for a typical suburban house, maybe 30ft by 30ft. I have a large patio and then grass with a border at the back and one either side. Having ripped out the existing garden when we moved into the house 2 years ago and replaced all the fencing, i wanted something that would quickly hide the 'new fence' look. Along one side I have a quick growing honeysuckle that is thriving and along the back i have another honeysuckle and a cematis, blossom tree and a small apple tree, soon to be joined with a blackberry bush The main feature along the back is 2 red robins, which i love and are thriving but I am never sure if they look right.
I have been told by a neighbour who is supposedly in to plants, that I should take them out as they have no place in a garden like ours!
any comments please, or recommendations for a replacement. the back fence gets pretty much full sun, soil is heavy (especially with all this rain!)
