Wow! Thanks for all the suggestions! I will give them all some thought and come up with a design plan for review! Good to know I can trim that bay tree though!

Thanks everyone

Rented property - new to gardening

Posted: 24/02/2013 at 17:17


I have recently moved to rented accomodation (hopefully long term rent) where I have a garden....well...sort is a patio with two flower pots (two old sinks) and 3 flower bed's with a patio in the centre.

I have been waiting for the weather to get a bit better to start work on it (landlord doesn't mind) and today was the day. I've attached some pictures of it and the work completed today but would like some advice about how best to get it to work for me. I would like to grow my own vegetables and herbs with some flowers. 

There are three yucca plants which are irritating as hell but think I will need to keep them. What can I plant around everything? Some help on identifiying some of the other plants would be great too.

Sorry for all the questions - first time gardener here!

My work today

Annoying tree

Dead bramles/tree

Any help, much appreciated.
