Planting ideas please
Hi all, I'm new around here. I'm reasonably new to gardening but loving every minute. Most of my efforts are confined to my parents garden near Birmingham. Mine is such a mess it requires drastic action - just trying to get some help with it. Anyway my dilemma. My mom has a narrow border (east facing I think). It's fairly sunny and quite dry (thanks to the lilac. The soil is neutral. Although I've planted a fair amount in it that survived winter (and looked lovely) come spring the 6million bluebells pop up and smother everything. I've lost so many plants to the bluebells it's mad. I love the bulbs when they are out, but they don't last. Has anyone got any ideas what I could do with it, so it looks nice all year round. I could do with it being fairly low maintenance as my parents don't garden. (my dad is banned - he rips plants out!) Thanks in advance.
