Planting ideas please
Hi all I'm new around here and fairly new to gardening as well (but loving it). Ive been working on my parents garden for just over a year now, trying to get it looking nicer. I'm getting a but frustrated with the one border and hope you can help. The border is east facing (I think) neutral soil and tends towards the dry side. It's fairly narrow along the majority of it with a deeper bit around a rather large lilac. I've had success with a number of plants over summer. Many survived winter but were then smothered by the 6 million bluebells that pop up in spring (not much of an exaggeration). I took masses of bulbs out and I would swear it hasn't made a dent. It looks lovely when the bulbs are in flower but it only lasts 5 minutes then looks a mess the rest of the year. I would really appreciate some suggestions here. Thanks in advance. Sam.
