Cathy, I agree; it is stupid NOT to ask a question when we are surrounded by people with experience and knowledge.

I do hope Mowerman has not been put off the forum.

I would have thought that Santolina is a pretty big plant to edge those beds with. Maybe some small alpine type plants would be better?

Snoodle; you may spell my name any way you wish That Russian sage is fabulous, I cut some for the house and the scent is lovely. The proper name begins with 'P', (Perovskia or something like that...)  but Nut or Dove would know it. None of us knew that other wonderful scented bush did we?

I was thinking herbs too. I would suggest lots of different varieties of thyme. Also oregano and flat leaf parsley, winter savoury, summer savoury (think it is only an annual) tarragon, chives (can be invasive, but can be pulled out) a small prostrate rosemary. Not mint as it is invasive. I use 'Snow in summer' (I think it is properly called cistus tormentosa, but may be wrong) to soften some of my gravel areas. When it gets too big I just use scissors to cut it back; it will always grow towards the sun.
