Topbird, they all flowered in their first year. I sifted firstly through the foliage quality and then flower colours
I have lots of hellebores that fill much of the space in winter. I cut off flowers in spring and room is left for the summer perennials. It makes for a relatively low maintenance garden. The wider a border the easier it is I think. A narrow border is hard work, disappointing at different seasons and every plant has to earn its keep for a long time.
understanding how big a plant will be,,how tall,,how it spreads etc., when its at its best, helps then in putting plants together.
