I've seen them in sun and shade. They don't like stiff clay. I associate them with chalk.

If you go here

put London (or anywhere else of your choice) into the left hand search box, then click 'all dates' when that comes up. All the NGS open gardens in your area will come up. Click on any of them and most will have several photos of the garden. You can ignore the stately homes there are plenty of normal sized gardens

Does advertising like this have a good result. I've often wondered?

i think you need some shrubs under the trees to make that area balanced, otherwise its like 2 separate things, the flat bit at the bottom and leaves at the top. Fillers-in required to make it look more together.. Nice sized patch you've got there for a city garden.

I'll leave you to the experts now.

I'm no garden designer but there are some forum members that are very good. If you can post a pic or two of your garden, indicate which direction it faces and say what the soil is like I'm sure you'll get lots of suggestions.

I'd be afraid of ending up with that as well

There are no rules, it's your garden. You don't have to have a lawn though it's nice to have somewhere to sit. A bit of paving would do.

Looking at that photo there doesn't appear to be any permanent planting, all bedding, so you'd have nothing in winter, you need a shrub or some.
