First garden - some novice questions
I am completely new to gardening and have recently moved into my first house with the first garden that I own. The front garden has two beds/borders which are about 9 feet long x 2 feet wide and 6 feet long x 2 feet wide. I want to plant them with plants/flowers that are attractive to wildlife but I think I want it to be fairly controlled and structured. My questions are
- The area faces south east. Is this relevant?
- The front of the house is on a busy main road. Is THIS relevant? (I cant see how it could be but then I am currently clueless)
- I don't have an outdoor tap but I do have a watering can. Am I right in thinking that native plants dont need so much watering and I might be ok without a hosepipe/water butt.
- I would rather plant established potted plants - is January a terrible time to do this?
