New English Gardener - 2 Questions

Advice please:  What plants that will compliment, can I plant alongside :

(a) Tall Campanula

(b)  Rudbekia

(c)   Gladiola

(d)   Day Lilly




  • As these are all summer flowering maybe something of interest for other seasons - how large is the flower bed? Without knowing the size/site/position etc I'd be thinking underplanting/interplanting with  bulbs for spring - daffodils, tulips; maybe a shrub or two which are evergreen for winter interest or which flower in winter/spring - pieris, camellia...again without knowing your soil, whether the bed is an island or has a hedge/wall behind it .....some more detail will give you much better advice.

    I'd certainly add some grasses to the mix.
