Hi all , I've done my good dead for the year and dug my elderly neighbours borders cleared out all the weeds and grass . The borders are about 2ft wide 1ft deep surrounding a 20ft sq lawn . The soil is not bad , wondered if I should add some fertiliser or whatever to it , I suppose manure would be best but wondered if something like fish/blood bone or chicken pellets would be ok can't really get manure . He is going to buy some plants from the garden centre to plant , any ideas ? Thx

Hi , I've just cleared out a border for a friend , ripped everything out , it's about 2ft wide 20ft square surrounding a lawn , he's asked me if I can plant anything now to brighten it up because it's too bare . I'm trying to tell him to leave it over winter , maybe plant some bulbs for spring. What do you think ? he wont want to spend too much so any ideas . thx.
