New Border - What plants!?
So here is a photo using the hose outlining my first proposed flowerbed. It get sun from first light until around 2.30pm /3.00pm and then is in partial shade. i was going to dig up the grass, fork through the soil, add new compost and feed, and line the side of the bed with wooden log rolling.
THat young tree will be moved to against the wall, leaving me ample room for plants. I have young plants given to me by my parents -
Coreopsis, Helenium, Gaillardia, Spartium, Penstemon and Hollyhock.
I am keen to plant a bed that will attract wildlife. Will these plants do well in that space. With it not being in sun ALL day?
Can anyone recommend me some suitable plants, preferrably perennials with colour as I will plant a Skimmia at the very back to thicken.
Its fairly big, what with the hose running at 8metres!
