Plants for new border
I have quite a big new border at the rear and side of my garden (I will try and post pics tomorrow) And I could do with some help, but please keep it simple (note my name!).
I've been browsing past GW mags trying to decide what plants to put in and have also had a few threads already which have given me some idea and we are definitely having a trip to the local GC at weekend.
So far I have on my list - roses (lots of!), Hellebores, I would really like a peony and begonias. I need some winter colour so looking at something evergreen with red/coloured leaves or berries.
I have lots of annual seeds to sow to fill it with colour to year but any more ideas for perennials / ever greens would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance
PS I have 2 Beagles that like to 'mooch' in the garden so need to be careful with poisonous plants they may eat!
PPS I haven't tested the soil yet so not sure of the Ph but think it is probably more alkali judging by other plants in the area and also the fact the my azalea is doing nothing!!
