ideas for raised beds -new garden
we have finally got round to sorting out some raised beds in our garden, house is a new build so we are starting from scratch. The garden is v wide, not long, so we have had some brick raised beds put in along the back fence and a pergola. I was just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for plants for the beds. Garden is south west facing so gets the sun. Ideally I would like some colour all year round and perennials that will flower for a few years. I also want to try and grow plants that hide the fence, which is quite wide. Then have some smaller ones growing over the raised wall. I'm also looking for the best clematis to grow over the pergola. Would a be able to grow this in a pot? Any advice, ideas welcome. Totally new at this gardening lark, but kind of excited too.
