New Garden, New to Gardening - help!
It's 30x7ft, hence my username.
It was covered in membrane/stones/decking when I arrived, but as you can see I've got rid of those. I've done a separate thread about how to rescue the soil. I'm thinking of doing some raised beds for veg and leaving some space without beds for non-edibles. Any advice on the best location for veg/non-veg in terms of light would be very welcome. I know that's a bit vague, because different plants like different conditions...
I'd like to stick to native plants if possible - but I have inherited some plants and don't feel I can dump them now (see photos - any idea what they are? The one with pink/white flowers smells like cat wee and bees love it!).
The garden is NW facing. There is a large leylandi tree in a neighbour's garden, to the top left in the picture, so direct light is limited somewhat. The top half gets light in the morning, and the bottom half in the afternoon. The fences also limit direct light, so maybe the raised beds should go in the middle of the garden?
