Hi new to the forum and looking for design ideas

Hi coys looks like you've made a great start.

Do you have any preference on style, colour, form? Would you say a traditional look, cottagey or more modern? 

Give a few pointers on what you like and I am sure you will have suggestions flying at you!

Why not plant all the different colours Farley? Vinca comes in light blue dark blue purple and white. Sorry no yellow but there is a yellow leafed vinca.

No idea. You could try posting it on Gardenbuddies. The forum is mainly Americans they would know.

Could the handle bars at the front be designed to fold down so you could reach over the front if you needed to?

Would be good to have carry trays either side to take the hand tools, seeds etc that you want to use. Still think three wheels not four. In a garden you need as narrow as possible to access all areas.and caterpillar tracks sounds great!

Could it be designed as a three wheeler like modern buggies? Seems more manoeuvrable than a 4 wheeler.

Hi Hairy Nick  

Have to say at the minute everything is all straight lines. Could you make it a bit more curvy? If as sunny as you say, is it sheltered on that fence? YOu could grow Trachelospermum jasminoides. Evergreen, leaves turn red in winter and the most delicious smell. Would cover most of that fence once it got going.

If you have a climber or arching shrub you want to propagate from take a length of growth peg it down onto the soil with a tent peg, cover with a little mound of soil just where it is pegged and leave for a month or so. Go check it every now and again and once roots developed cut it from the mother plant and pot it up.

Before Paeonies put on growth in the Spring pop an upturned 16" wire basket on top.....normally pick them up this time of the year from the it grows it comes through the holes, the basket is completely hidden and no staking required
