Small garden needs help

Your big plants really dominate and taking them out would be a solution and give you a feel of more space straightaway. Your bay tree could be dug out and planted in a pot and you could topiarise it to keep it manageable. You can also grow some veggies in amongst your plants. Or even in pots. An annual patch you can change year on year and use hot colours - Cannas, californian poppy, all sorts. And don't forget that there is a seed swap thread so you may find something there.

WillDB I have some euphorbia seeds from my mother in law. Alas I don't know what variety they are but if you'd like them let me know.

Hi Ladygardener2, could I have some cerinthe and some rudbeckia please. I put my seed list up a couple of days ago, there might be something on there you'd like in return.

Hi Perki, Lyn, Fishy 65, Grandma, Bekkie

can you pm me your adresses and I'll sort out seeds for you.

 

Grandma, the RHS site has a pic. the flowers are produced around the stem and the top is pale yellow and the bottom is a darker yellow. It has nice seed heads and goldfinches love them and bees love the flowers. It seeds easily and it covers the ground densely so there are no weeds near it.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
