Helpppp! 24 x1 metre border- clay, shady and next to fence- lucky me!,
Can anyone help please as i'm new to this gardening lark?
i have a really long garden which is also very wide
right at the end of my garden- about 30 metres from the house- is a 20 metre wide 1 metre deep border .
its next to a fence which ive just had to put up as there had previously been bamboo there which had run down the garden
anyhow , 2000 pounds later (for removal of trees/bamboo) and erection of fence i am left with a long thin border in clay.
cos i'm getting on, i dont want something thats hard work to look after and expensive to buy.
as ive got hundreds of hardy geraniums- i was wondering if a long bed of these with a row of different topiaries (don symetrcally from centre of fence) would look ok- perhaps 2 for spring, 2 summer, 2 winter etc--- or would it look like an identity parade?
If anyone has any ideas id be grateful
