Inherited a garden but have no idea what to do??
I have recently become a proud owner of a house that was empty for over a year before we moved in. Having never had my own garden I would describe myself as a bit of a novice, but am keen to learn. The garden seems to be very established and looks to have once been someones pride and joy - however, it is now a bit of a jungle.
I am in need of some help - I have a beautiful Camellia bush (white flowers) and a large Hydrangea (no flowers yet!) that need to be moved due to building works. Unfortunately this needs to be done in the next couple of weeks which I understand isn't the best time to be transplanting plants - unfortunately this can't be avoided, it's a move them or lose them situation. Does anyone have any advice as to the best way to do this?
In regards to the other plants in the garden - whilst we attempt to tidy everything up would I do any harm if I just cut everything right back?
I am in SW London and my garden faces east.
Any words of wisdom much appreciated
