Very large garden Victoria, and very new, I only started making borders in autumn 2011, and the last border this Spring. It's been very hard work but I am thrilled with it, it looks like it's been established for years. Before that it was like a mini pine forest, we dug out 7 25 yr old conifers from one border and a whole row of conifer hedge from the new border.
it was all done on the cheap as I couldn't possible afford to buy plants.
most of it is from seeds interspersed with some bare roots from Parkers which I have since split and planted out.
