Hi fairygirl.  Thanks for the advice.  You will see that I have a small garden and two narrow borders, a quadrant border with only a buddleia in it and a newly laid lawn.  Advice on narrow borders for perennials and all year interest gratefully received.  My garden faces west and there is now little shade.  I will get a soil testing kit.  My mother in law is a fantastic gardener but I am pretty poor, due to time constraints.

You can see the timber sleepers better on this picture, llain on their side with stakes attached to the back of them and driven in to make them secure.

I'm veryinterested in the discussion about plants as I have some newly deplanted borders that need a replan.  I had a similar small town garden, with stepping stones which was messy but we have replaced with this block paving and newly levelled grass with timber sleeper border on two sides which is now my blank canvas. Am looking forward to a bankholiday gardening fest!
