can i plant flowers for summer and spring in the same patch of earth or do i have to seperate them

Go ahead and plant them together, that way you will have interest and flowers in bloom for a longer period of time.

It really depends on what you like... if you are into bulbs the crocus, snowdrops, irises and tulips will look good up until about May. Then you could have later flowering irises, lilies and sissyrinciums. There is a huge amount of choice really. Small dianthus, primulas, polyanthus, perennial poppies....... Oh lily of the valley, saxifrages, sweet peas (either the annual or the perennial), small heathers.

And no you can plant any combination of flowers you want together - I'd avoid putting to clashing colour next to each other but have seen it done intentionally for effect and it worked.
