I have 4 slightly raised borders (sleepers as we are below next doors garden), each 2.4m long and 1m deep in one long row along the fence.
I have been researching what I like and don't like etc for ages and decided today to bit the bullet and buy some plants to at least start me off and I can keep adding as funds allow.
So I brought -
1 Stipa gigantea
2 Stipa tenuissima
4 Palace purple heuchera
2 Hebe, the bushier heart breaker
2 white lupins
1 white and 1 pink Salvia
They are currently soaking but I did place them out to get an idea and I have no idea how to arrange them! Do I put them all in one bed or spread them out? How is best to arrange them without it looking odd (which it did when I put them out). I would like a border that has interest all year and is not too difficult to manage, what else would go well with what I have brought?
Any tips greatfully recieved.
