Im an absolute newbie to gardening - i really dont have much of a clue. Plus with a toddler and a baby i dont have much time either to research things.
I would like to re-vamp the garden, particularly the side strip of grass we have which is pointless at the moment.
Can anyone suggest what sort of plants i should buy - i would like a mix of flowers & shrubs which are colourful & low maintenance.
As i stand out the back of my house im looking in a north-west direction (i have no idea what aspect this makes the border)
Any advice would be hugely appreciated - i went to a couple of garden centres in the spring and quite frankly they made me feel stupid for not knowing much about gardening
