Hi Oldtimer. As the others have said - if you can get some pix on here it will help with some suggestions. Start a new thread with a suitable title like 'looking for ideas for front garden' or something similar, add a bit of extra info with the type of soil, colours you prefer, aspect and so on, and then you'll get loads of ideas
Hi Daniel, Have you any idea's for a plot of land in the middle of the mediterranean?Have just bought a rather large plot with olives and vines. They are manageable but I will need a lot of help with types of vegetables and fruit to grow. Maybe a suggested plan of action wouldn't come amiss, as it will be a retirement project so am looking forward to any suggestions...I mean any regards Napo
Take me with you.
I have just had my garden done with artificial grass and a border at the top of the garden with shrubs in also side borders with roses it looks so tidy now also a fish pond as before i had a shed a greenhouse and lots of tubs on the patio which was untidy
Napo..........easiest and best solution is to look around and check with your neighbouring properties.....in that situation, they will only be growing stuff which does well. What works here in the UK will not often be feasible in your environment. You will get lots of advice ( too much probably ! ) but better that than relying totally on gardeners in the UK........Horses for Courses, etc.
Where are the border design ideas from Gardeners world magazine on the Gardeners world website ?
Hi Tim, the magazine and the website run 'in tandem' but they do not necessarily contain the same articles/information.

I have a south west facing garden in a coastal area of south Wales. Pretty exposed too. I love Kniphofia (particularly red hot poker) but am looking for suggestions for complimentary plants - preferably evergreen to add to the 'Tropical' feel of the garden.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
I've got a "hot border" and have Kniphofia in that. To compliment I have:
and lots more besides. We're also very exposed and get some serious snow in winter so it's got to be pretty tough to survive
