ideas on what to plant in this...
So last year I had the back garden tidied up and had a large planter added with a bench seat attached. At the time the company filled it with marigolds and some other "single use" plants. These have all been dug out ready for planting this year, however I'm at a loss as to what to plant due to being very new to gardening.
The soil is currently quite clay like underneath which around 4-6" of sandy soil on top. I have forked through some potting compost to try and better the soil too on the advice of a friend.
This area gets full sun from around 9:30/10am through to mid/late afternoon.
I've already planted soft fruits and some veg in the smaller boxes but want to have a nice floral area in the main planter.
Look forward to any ideas you have,
