The important thing is not to be frightened to experiment. Once you get the gardening bug, there is never enough room for all the plants you want to put in. I have a big slug problem, so anything too tasty ends up in large pots, as the bees and butterflies don't mind where they are. Go to gardens in ALL seasons, look online, walk in older type properties. See what you like and ask questions of the onsite gardeners and staff as to what conditions they like. What about a trellis, or make something with old wood. Train climbers up it, or espalier fruits. Plant a shrub or tree. I could go on and on!!!
