Hi everyone, I've finally manged to make some progress with my garden and would appreciate your thoughts before I actually get planting!
I've established that my garden is south-east facing and soil is slightly acidic to neutral PH 6.5-7.0.
So far I've resisted the urge to visit the garden centre and but lots of lovely shrubs and have patiently dug a border by removing the top layer of turf (stacked grass side down elsewhere) and will dig in some compost next weekend....will post a picture if I can.
These are the plants I'm thinking of getting:
Choisya ternata AGM Mexican orange blossom
Nandina domestica 'Fire Power' heavenly bamboo 'Fire Power'
Buddleja × weyeriana 'Sungold' AGM butterfly bush 'Sungold'
Deutzia longifolia 'Veitchii' deutzia 'Veitchii'
Elaeagnus 'Quicksilver' oleaster 'Quicksilver'
Euonymus alatus 'Compactus' AGM compact winged spindle tree
Ruscus aculeatus butcher's broom
Any comments appreciated!!
