Creating flower beds and shrubberies
Hi everyone. This is my first post so hope someone out there can give me some tips. I have a very large garden but very little gardening knowledge and experience. Since we moved in I've had high hopes of creating those wonderful borders and shrubberies that you see in magazines - yes I know how ridiculous that sounds! The borders are already there, some are fairly empty, others completely overgrown with old and very leggy shrubs. To be honest, I don't know where to start. Is this even the right time of year to attempt this? Should I clear everything out and start again? I've obviously looked in books and online, but I'm finding it all very overwhelming. Any tips just to get me started would be very gratefully received. Many thanks.
