Hello,i'm new on here and to "proper" gardening apart from a couple of rose trees and strawberry plants and i'm looking for advice.I've recently been given some hanging basket frames and chains and would like to grow my own instead of just buying ready made baskets,how would I start and what would you advise me to grow?
I've also been given a job lot of tools,(various sized forks,spades,hoes) and I fancy making use of them.My wife says I can do what I like with the front garden as long as I leave the back garden for the kids.It's facing east and gets sunlight in the morning but none in the afternoon.I was thinking of planting in the borders and digging out or putting in a raised flower bed but i'm not sure what to plant so again i'm open to all advice.The garden is approx. 20'x9'. Thank you in advance,
