thanks for your comments.

what i meant to say was, i will be using the smaller rocks around the edge.

I do have larger rocks which are about 25kg each.which would be used as a feature.

i have looked on the internet at pictures of rockerys and found some which look good and i am going to try to copy.

thanks again for all your comments.

Thanks verdun.

I received the rocks off a friend and yes the rocks are all the same.

I know the semi shade will be a problem so carefull planting will be done.

The area of the garden has no edging so most of the rocks will be used to make a border around the area.

I will also be putting down gravel.the membrane is already down,done that this morning.

The area for my rockery is in two parts one measures 10 foot by 10 foot and the other is only 18 inches wide but 13 foot long,this area will be used for height with plants growing down to the large rockery.

hope it works out but may change it before i finish it.

Well onto my next project which consists of 130 rocks.

Yes i am doing a rockery.

anyone got any suggestions on what plants would look good.

I want plants with height and plants for ground cover.

anyone got any pictures of a rockery garden.

area is semi shade and i am going to add loads of compost to lighten the soil.

This is my second project i have done and still have about 5 to do.

My first one was my grasses and would like to thank everyone who gave advice on the thread.

The area for my rockery measures 10 foot by 10 foot.

could be water logging,low temperatures or the lack of feeding.

It needs good drainage.

try john inners no2.

This is only what I found on internet.

I ordered some roses from jparkers a month ago,and on monday I emailed them asking where my order was and was told it had been sent out.

That same night at 9pm I had a knock on the door and it was someone who lives in my street saying that he thinks this parcel is mine.

he told me it had his address on the box so he opened it and the invoice inside had my address on.

It was my order and i complained to parkers.

I have had loads of deliveries from parkers and for this to happen is a joke.

I have told parkers that i would not be ordering anymore.

see what happens.

what to do about these bulbs that have just arrived in the post

Thanks Verdun.

Can you tell me where is the best place to get some of the grasses you told me to get.

I do us parkers,T&M and some of the plants I have had off them are poor and I am after mature plants.

Moved my acer this morning and it was more difficult than I thought.The root ball was massive and it was very heavy but it is now in its final position and now looking forward to the planting of my grasses which are going where my acer was.
