West Sussex, United Kingdom
I can't log in, I don't know why though I am a member!!
However "Bulbaholic" you gave me a very good compost recipe which my very useful handyman has just made up (it took him 4 hours of back breaking work) and he has weeded a bed and dug in some of the mixture.
Next stage: the bed faces North with a painted brick wall and gets very little sun. Now it's been gutted I have left in it two honeysuckle (which are a bit weedy, hopefully the new compost will help) and a yellow rose that does well in the Summer.
I would like to plant the bed with plants and/or shrubs that can deal with this aspect. It can be a chilly area. I'm not keen to fill it with bulbs because when they are over there's just bare spaces. Any suggestions from anyone would be gratefully received. Many thanks.
