New Build Plot

I'd echo the don't tie yourself in typo quickly bit.  We're refurbishing the house so the garden had to take a back seat.  I'm glad it did because design changed repeatedly over the time.  I've ended up with something very formal - didn't even know that was my thing - but it's where ideas lead me.  Paths and greenhouse base etc only going in now, over 4 years since we bought the place.

Glad I'm not alone.  I suspect the village thinks I'm odd.  Keep peering into gardens, sometimes whipping out my phone for a crafty photo.  But it's a good way of plant spotting and finding out what you like. And likely to suit your conditions.

Do you mind if I use this thread to rant? Been waiting in for delivery of pergola.  Hasn't shown up. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

What is this weed?

I've got them all along my roadside border. No point trying to remove - they are down the whole road, and there are very established shrubs and old trees.  They look very pretty and don't seem to do much harm.  Well the daintier bulbs get a bit crowed out (eg fritillaries, chionodoxa,) but otherwise no probs.  I am cautious though about moving anything from there into the garden in case I spread it.

And roughly where the sun is.

I got lots of books from the library and magazines that give ideas. Cup of tea in the sunshine and a garden book with lots of pictures is heaven!  

Another favourite of mine is the double decker park and ride bus from the top of which you can see into other people's gardens

I was thinking shears too.  Or what about changing it for alternative lawn eg chamomile, thyme.

 Hi, this is the area along the roadside of my garden  - lime trees above - about a month ago. It was covered in brambles and nettles when I moved into the house and I'm really pleased how its come on.  The snowflakes and hellebores were there already, but have really come on now they have space to breathe.  I added the geranium clumps from elsewhere in the garden and planted the daffs. Further along, more recently I've added hosta and more hellebore and split some snowflake clumps, and added pulmonaria ( unfortunately right on top of a snowflake clump before it appeared!!) I've got some brunnera to go in, and next year planning cyclamen around the base of the tree.  I forumed for advice on it last year so thanks all for your help.
