HELP! Need advice on lawn change

Posted: 15/10/2012 at 13:52

I've seen some wildflower turf available that has all sorts in it - what flowers depends on the underlying soil.  This would be a more expensive option, but you do have a small lawn.

Otherwise, have a look at your soil and pick a seed mix to match - mixes available on many websites/ garden centres.

It's a very vigorous plant so will grow back well.

Good tips on watching out for birds and leaving berries, it's a fantastic plant for wildlife.

Are Hostas really for shade?

What do people have planted next to their Hostas? I want to plant some in a shaded border.

Plant books

I've got a lot of the Hessayon Expert series from charity shops, anything by the RHS is good and often available.

The RHS What plant where, and also What plant when are two good reference books - small handy size, colour picks and organised into colour, season or ideal planting location.

RHS is what I was thinking of.  Can I use that towards membership of the Society of Garden Designers?

many thanks

I have my own gardening business and would like a good understanding of design so I can take on bigger projects.
