Hi, my front borders always look messy so thought I would put down some blue/purple slate to stop the weeds.
We have already cut down the trees and now the daffs are up I thought it would be a good time to put down the slate.
As I want the bulbs to come up again next year I thought it is probably best not to put down a weed surppressant fabric and just put the slate down on the soil - thought this way I could also maybe plant marrigolds during the summer.
I am going about this the right way?
Also have some nerine bulbs - will they be ok planted under the slate?
Last question anyone any idea what the flowers are in pic 2? - the big green bunches
