Small garden, where to start?

Posted: 22/02/2013 at 15:30

Thanks Gareth, I am really like the idea of growing fruit in my garden and I didn't know you could get dwarf Cherry Trees. I will have a look at that.

Thank you Tilley, I like the idea of putting some pots on the fence. I could maybe put some herbs in smaller pots.

Thank you Dave. The pictures look great. Birlliant idea's. I like the idea of bamboo, but do you think it would look OK against a clematis?

I have got a couple of small lavender plants in there at the moment.

I started to think purple, but have kind of gone a bit all over the place. I now think purple and whites.

Is there a ideal number of plants you should have in a small border?

Thank you for the link I shall look at that now.

Thanks Rosa, that has given me inspiration. The back wall is north facing so I will need to look for something that does OK in the shade. I like the idea of a clamatus, so will do a bit of searching.

Kate, I do think this is where I have been going wrong. I have brought some plants, but not really thought about it, hence ending up as a bit of a miss match. 

Have you got any suggestions of plants that may work well and give long last flowers? I do like the idea of pots.

Dave, I think you’re right it defiantly needs some height; do you have any favorite plants that could help me achieve this?

Hi Lavender Lady, I must say your garden is beatiful! I am at the other end with my garden as I am just starting out. I would love a garden with a similar theme to yours. Would you have any recommendations for plants to start out with?

Hello,

I brought my first house last year and it has a small garden. When I brought it was very neglected and full of weeds. I have cleared it and am now left with a rather dull looking garden. 

I have dug out a border on the right hand side and attempted to fill it with plants I like, however as you can see its not really worked out.

Please can any gardener’s help. I would really like a garden that has lots of flowers, color and interest.

Any idea's, thoughts or advise would be much welcomed!

Emma
