Hopefully the most suitable place to post - but as I value a lot of the advice on here it would be great to get some of your ideas!
Okay so following some work I have a berm around the edge of my garden/field approximately 150yds long, 8ft wide by 4 foot high. There's a hedge behind it but its pretty open and light but partial shade. The soil is poor subsoil - neutral, very sandy and stony excellent drainage and I'm in the south west.
I've had a few nicotania hollyhocks sunflowers cornflowers etc growing well but as leftovers from elsewhere. I am after is ideas for planting up the whole thing on a shoestring providing cover and colour. I thought some forget me nots and pulminaria, would be good as edging plant (just run the mower over if they encroach onto the grass), but any other ideas?I like the idea of drift planting, but would like to keep it cheap as cant afford to buy the huge quantity I'd need to cover it all.
