Daughter's new, to her, garden is South facing but very soggy, even in a dry year according to neighbours.There is a clay sub soil apparently & it's slightly acidic.
We assume land drains exist, but the building of more property behind the gardens some yrs ago has made the wet conditions worse.
Since I garden on dry, East facing, part-shade conditions I'm at a loss to know where to start. There are large areas of 'moor grass'/mollina. She doesnt want a pristine lawn, thank goodness.
Once we've (me, probably ) removed unwanted/dying plants & shrubs & attempted to add as much compost etc to any borders, any ideas/suggestions/tips for planting more suited to the site will be gratefully received.
So far I've short-listed Astillbes, Candelabra primulas, Cornus. J.
