New Garden Design HELP!

Posted: 11/05/2016 at 10:42


I would like some help with my garden layout. I would like a seating area / entertaining area and a cottage style border with a few shrubs, a climbing rose, water feature and mirror..

The garden is 4.7m wide and 16m long; south facing with lots of sun. Unfortunately the neighbours have corrigated iron shed bearing down over my garden and there are a number of walls etc. 

I have attached a pic of current garden and initial layout design. Please let me know what you think.

So my mother is law is over and I was checking out my raspberries...which I have lot of! Most of them are still ripening, but a couple were nice and pink. 

Then she says 'oh, when i was a little girl we picked them in the woods until one day we opened one out and saw a maggot inside, you need to be careful with maggots!' o i opened one of the ripe ones up and saw a bloody maggot in it!! Argh!! 

I was soo looking forward to my raspberries! Is there anything i can do now to save this years crop? Can i spray them with anything?

Plant ID please

Planting out now

If i see some nice plants in the GC would it be okay to plant them out now?...Is there any benefit of doing it now vs Spring?...

My garden is so bare!! I only just finished all the ground work late summer and haven't had time to plant anything in the beds...
