New border width - 1m or 1.2m?
I've dug out a new border in the garden, going down the length of the fence between us and next door. I've currently dug it at 1m wide, and dug in lots of organic matter, but before I start planting it up, I'm wondering whether I've done myself a disservice and would be better off widening it to 1.2m?
Which is a better width? Is 1.2m just a bit too wide, or is it actually more practical in terms of variety of planting etc?
The border will be a mixture of shrubs and perennials (and annuals in this first year whilst any new plants settle in/turn up their toes in disgust).
I'm erring on the side of 1.2m now, but having already dug it, is 1m actually perfectly suitable?
