Cheshire, United Kingdom
So I'm new to GoY and gardening as a whole. Just last year I planted a few bits and pieces and started landscaping. However this year I have tried to continue with what seems to be a huge job and a rather large learning curve!
I have divided the back garden into three section.
1. Slate patio and container garden area
2. Plum slate with stepping stones and woodland border
3. Woodland/cottage Garden
So it's section 3 I would love some advice on. I have the following border to fill. As you can see from the pic it's far from finished and planting ready. I am trying to plan the whole border before I start planting. I would love a full cottage border with poppies, bluebells, iris', lupins, lavender, cosmos and more.
Do you guys have any ideas on what other plants and shrubs I could put in to fill out this huge border and suppress the weeds? The area is in a south facing garden with partial shade throughout the day.
Thanks for taking the time to answer.
