Ooh blimey, I'm feeling the pressure I hope it looks ok!
thanks for your help. Soil is clay but I've been improving it so hoping it'll be good for heleniums. It's sunny from first thing thro to 1pm ish.
Now I won't be planting until the spring, I've got time to give it some thought. So I'll be printing this thread and get planning!
Tips for grasses would be good, given my heavy soil. They mentioned moorhexe in GW and I looked it up and seems suitable so I'm looking at molinia. Also got a deschampsia recently so seeing how it does.
here's the site I prepared earlier in the year
The little green bit on the left is crocosmia. Found it amongst the weeds so left it! Its the run of the mill orange stuff. However I've seen some with bronze leaves and yellow flowers that'd work well.
thanks for the tips re foliage. Achillea can be untidy too so will indeed need to give some thought.
