HI can anyone suggest what I can plant in this border. It is looking v sad at the moment as I was away for the summer and it was v neglected, but it's a little raised bed in a tiny courtyard. In the spring and early summer it gets lovely morning light, but this time of the year because of nearby buildings it gets very little, although it is always 'bright'
I currently have a rose and a honeysuckle, neither of which are thrilled with the situation, although I am inclined to keep them, and am still trying to kill off the bay which keeps sprouting despite my best efforts - any advice with that welcome! - but what to plant along the bottom? In truth I would like something compact like lavender but I dont think it's sunny enough there for it to thrive properly, unless anyone can recommend a variety that might? All suggestions welcome
