Suggestions for filling a small south facing border

Posted: 01/07/2014 at 17:47

I've done it. Put row of lavender in and went armed to the garden centre with a list of your recommended  plants but unfortunately they didn't have any so I bought Some echinacea to go at the back and some cineraria maritima 'silver dust at the front  & left what was left of the irises in. It's not great but pleased it looks neat and smells nice x

Wow Thankyou very much! Maternity leave started and so a bit of (gentle) digging can commence and visits to garden centres (with good cafes)

Thanks for suggestions. Really no time at all?!! Oh heck I'm in for a shock aren't it.

next door did the lavender plants & looks neat but I envy the woman (grown up kids) across who has the cram packed border all arranged beautifully!

Would love some direction 

I've got a small border which is against a low red brick wall (about 70cm high). The dimensions of border are 3 metres wide by about 60cm deep. 

I'm a total novice and early this year decided to fill the empty border with lovely spring and early summer bulbs...which looked fabulous for a few weeks.

My problem is that now it's full of dying leaves and nothing filling it out. I'm due to have my first baby at the end of August & so will have little time to maintain and will have lots (I hope) visitors So would like it to look pretty August September October. 

Mum has agreed to help me dig it over and replant....but what to buy?!

South facing garden. Love purples, whites, blues flowers.

Any suggestions of combinations you've found effective? I promise to out a before and after picture on 

Thanks

Ooo the polish spirit is beautiful colour. Pay day tomorrow so off to see if they have any in my centre as the back garden would benefit from some colour as well.

Awwww great ideas guys Thankyou i like the idea of a combo & am going to go on the search for maybe a white rambling rose and blue/purple clematis & will definitely think about relocating the trough. If I dig up the bushes can anyone recommend how they'd make sure theyd got all the roots? Is it just digging deep, then reseeding with grass seed?

The previous owner was obviously very keen on evergreens...flipping nightmare to mow round em!

I love roses so a rose clematis combination might be good. Would I be best putting a small trellis on the wall or would netting do?
