Think my problem is that I have picked on flowering times to spread interest and because my garden is so small I have treated it all the same. This year I have noticed it has 3 zones ( it's only 30ftx30ft if that! And a 2ft ish boarder on all sides. Will find a picture....
the conifer boarder is shaded more and plants pull. To the right is a sunny and dryer boarder as garden is built up higher and is backed by concrete gravel board. Then other side on left is sunny but holds more moisture.
next year I'm planning what to do. I'm going to lift my dahlias to over winter then have a think.
i have some large allium to put in but unsure which side yet. The sunny side will take most of what I have but the dry sunny and shade is making me wonder.
astilbe- which side??
