No good at making tables aym !!!!
Uzrya, check your soil and conditions there .....get a ph test done (cheap and easy). is your soil light and free draining or does it seem heavy and wet? Is it sunny or shady?
are there any garden NURSERIES near you? Plants are much cheaper and the nursery owners will happily suggest plants for you to grow and how to grow them.
evergreens are important but don't underestimate the value and beauty of plants that die down or lose their leaves in winter. garden centres are stocking small perennials just now and these will grow away very quickly at this time of year.
hardy geraniums are good "fillers"....Blue varieties like Rozanne will make large mounds of blue flowers all summer long. Salvias like Caradonna will give you spikes of blue flowers for weeks in summer. Heucheras are evergreen but with red, orange, yellow and green foliage.....mostly white flowers.
Dont forget a couple of scented plants....daphnes, sarcoccocas, and witch hazels for example.
I would suggest you plant out lots of summer annuals......sow seed or buy plug plants. After summer you will have a better idea of what plants you want.
During the summer we publish photos of our plants so maybe you will see something you like.
