hello, i was hoping some of you more expierienced gardeners could help me please!! ive really got into my gardening and have learnt alot over the last year. my garden was all shingle so i have had everything in pots, this year i have put two bedding areas in my garden and have filled them with summer plants and spring flowering bulbs but being a mother with a smallish budget i cant afford to keep buying seasonal bedding plants to keep the colour up in my garden so can any of you please suggest plants, shrubs, flowers or bulbs that i can plant that will come up year after year ( perinials i think ) in autumn and winter that dont grow to monsterous sizes. much appreciated natalie.
