Flowering plants to make a 'garden flow'

Posted: 09/11/2014 at 16:14

I enter the Leeds in Bloom garden competition, I have been fortunate to win some gold awards, however this year I was awarded a silver.  The judges’ comments included: - ‘The annuals that are there are too ‘placed’, as opposed to swathes of colour which would make the garden flow’.

I know that three or more flowering plants should be grown in groups.  I would like your advice on the following please: -  Can I get perennials to ‘form’ these groups of flowers, how many in a group, how far apart should the groups be, and which flowers would you recommend? 

 

I would appreciate and advice that you can give me.

Reading several items on the correct way ' up' to plant amenome, the specialist say plant them on their side, which l would suggest it doesn't really matter which way they are planted, so just 'throw' them and look forward to them growing, happy gardening.
