Hi Graham,

I've done a bit of looking around the net, these look ideal. As you said, there are quite a lot of varieties so I can choose a few colours rather than blanketing the lot.

My main concern though, is that of conserving what I already have for next year, are geraniums quite brutish, or do you think my bulbs will just push through next spring?

Thanks

Yes, that's artificial grass as the garden is north facing, with little sun, and grows poorly. I love it, so there.

Thanks Fairygirl. There's a mix of spring and summer bulbs in and making progress.

Lots of tulips, crocus, hyasinth, iris, fritillaria, narcissus etc.
I'd love something that will grow pretty quick, but that's not imperative. Mostly, I'd like something that will flower for as long as possible but not harm my other perennials.

Many thanks

Ed

Hi there.

I'm really enjoying my first real garden! I would appreciate a bit of advice though.

While everything seems to be ticking along nicely, I'd quite like to plant some evergreen ground cover to 'fill things in' a bit.

Something quite low growing that won't take over what I already have would be ideal.

I'd really appreciate any advice you could give.
