I am planning on extending a very boring, narrow border by a north facing fence, which is to be replaced shortly with a more attractive one. The only plant which does very well there is a Clematis Comtesse du Bouchard, the 2 roses are coming out as are the geraniums, which apart from attractive foliage do not flower well (they will be placed in a sunny spot). The shape will be curved, to follow on from the rest of that side of the garden, and about 10' deep and 16' wide. I will be looking for tall shrubs and underplanting with various smaller plants (yet to be decided) and lots of Spring bulbs.
I also have ideas for my front garden, which is mostly grass with a crazy paved parking area. I would really like to decrease the size of the lawn and replace with lots of colourful, show-stopping plants. Maybe next year!
