Suggestions for filling a small south facing border

Well, you'll probably have more actual time while baby is very small than when he or she starts crawling and stays awake more in the daytime, but you might not have much energy if you're not getting much sleep when baby is small.

 Just make sure you don't wear yourself out - you need to save some energy for when it reaches its teens

Firstly, congratulations on baby - so exciting 

Agree, cistus are lovely, trouble free and will come back year after year.  Hardy geraniums too will give you lots of colour for very little work.

If you love purples, what about some asters (we used to call them Michaelmas Daisies).  Go for a few of the more compact shorter growing ones and they'll fill the autumn with colour 

All of these will be perfectly happy with the bulbs growing up through them in the spring

The name of the Daniel who is  Editor of  is Daniel Haynes, so not the same Daniel.  

You can send Daniel a Private Message by clicking on your name at the top right hand corner of this page and accessing Messages on the drop down menu.  He should be able to shed some light on this - hopefully

I've been having a bit of a tidy - stacking of empty pots in the nearest thing I've got to a 'hidden corner'.  I think I've got more empty pots than the Recycled Pot Crate at Notcutts up the road - but if I get rid of any I'll need some

I think that's really helpful OL - some people don't know how tiny their little plants are going to be.
