Green fields, what now?
With my landlords permission, I am starting my first real gardening adventure with a 8 x 1 metre border and have just started to remove the grass. It began with a bang as my shiny new spade hit the layer of flint beneath the grass. This is a slightly open ended question regarding how best to prepare the border for planting. I'd like low plants (heathers and alpines) nearer the house with taller ones (small conifers inspired by bluespruce) at the far end. I've posted a picture of the strip so any other suggestions and ideas are welcome.
