ground cover planting season
I am a newbie gardener with a small mainly courtyard garden and raised flowerbeds. They are currently largely planted with evergreen shrubs but I am starting to introduce some flowers to make it more colourful and I am not averse to digging out some of the old timers to make room for colour
I recall our tiny garden at home when I was growing up and have an image of lots of ground covering plants that I think included allysum, campanula and maybe forget-me-nots? I'd like something similar now but a) am not sure if these are the right ones and b) even if they are, when to plant them (and from seed or growing plant?). Any advice is most welcome.
BTW, I am very excited that the plants I have already put in, and that are still alive, are actually growing! I'm awaiting delivery of a rose and am considering a hydrangea...can't believe I even know what these plants are!!
