Hi roseradish I am not sure what your question is but if you put a picture of your garden now you will get a lot more suggestions. Also if you name some of your plant you want people can give you advise where best to plant.

most people plant taller plants at the back of the border getting smaller towards the front of the border. scented plant near path way etc. 

As people have already told you, most if not all gardeners do a bit of trail and error often changing their mind,  I do often.

I thought was just me who noticed the two packs instead of one for the subscribes, I have not seen any extra packs this year though. I just had a look at subscribing but i dont know how to do it online  think I got to do it through the magazine then post my details.

I put my aquilegea seeds in the propagator at 20-21C which I did think would be a little bit warm but they have germinated

What about a Viburnum Tinus variety, I am eyeing up Gweillian or what about Bodnantense dawn which isn't an evergreen but looks nice

Oh good no injures fishy, toughened glass is indeed a lot stronger/safe, you could use a little bit of silicone to help keep the clips in place. I am glad you got the GH up and running
