2) Would it be best to seedor to plug

3)Need help in what plants i plant, what i want to achieve is a cottage garden effect, my flower bed is 6.5m x 1m its a raised bed facing and its south - east facing, theres so many i would love to plant but room is minimal, any ideas?

    Not sure about buying on line but the 'freebies' that I have had from Morgan Thompson through GW have always been good.

    I prefer plugs if planting straight out and only grow seeds indoors but its personal choice. 

    As for which plants, the list is endless and a SE plot will get alot of sun so I would go for maximum impact with tall spikes of flowers such as foxgloves and verbena, alliums and cosmos - all of which are 'bee friendly'. One bit of advice that I will give you, having learnt the hard way, is don't be afraid of using large plants in a small space and don't skimp on them!! Good luck!
