Hi,

I'm really new to gardening and have done some good renovation recently. I have managed to clear a nice bed which is in partial shade (morning and midday sun) which is 3.2m x 1.4m.

I've seen some nice ready made beds you can buy, which have all the plants etc...what do you think of those? Good or bad?  

thanks

Hi pokhim , Im all for these type of collections  , they give a good selection usualy . Many times they are a good mix of tall for the back so forth and ending up with the small at the front. If you go for the oes which will come year after year they bunch up well . I can only think of one dissadvantage but its all in the ground work - check what growing conditions each plant needs and also the compost ie alpines like sandy gritty  mixture  though many plants are happy in a multi purpos compost . 

Hope this helps .
