So I've joined this forum to hopefully get some ideas and advice about my first ever garden. Its not massive but at the moment its a pretty blank space with a few unknown plants in it (I've put pictures in another thread).
I would really love to have a wildlife garden with plants for birds, bees and other insects but I'm not sure how possible it is with the garden being so shady. So far I'm planning on extending the borders out a bit so I have more room for planting, but its so hard to know where to start. I've bought some bulbs to plant but again, I'm not sure about the best place to plant them if I'm planning of changing things about next year.
I also really want a Japanese Maple and maybe a small apple tree but I'm not sure where to place them.
My first few pictures are from June when we were looking at the house.
These are from today:
