Ooo right yes i get it. So shrubs first = structure and shape. then fill in spaces with perrenials and bulbs etc. How do you go about planting up a long border? Ive found a planting plan online (http://www.contemporarygardendesign.co.uk/shady-border-plant-group/) that i like and suits my garden but it says that the plants that it uses will create a border of 2.5m, but my border is about 13m spanning the entire garden. Would i literally just repeat the plan? Sorry for all the questions! :S

When planting a new border, which plants should you/do you plant first? Would you plant shrubs first and then perennials.. etc or does it matter? Also, when deciding on where to plant your plants, do you go for a certain pattern like in 3's or just random? AND when is the best time to be planting a new border?

mmm a 1 pack was a variety of euonymus and the other pack was a variety of all sorts, from my gardening knowledge they included buxus, heather and some other one with reddish leaves and small red berries :S. Well they were in the B&Q 'outdoor' garden centre so i presume they have been. although they seem to be nice and healthy. ill get a picture of the the 2 unknow ones tomorrow. if i were to pot them on, would it be wise to wait till autum to plant them out?
