Hi Everyone.

I have been looking on the net for a few days for ideas, and stumbled across this site.
There are some really stunning gardens on this site.

I have been trying to garden, over the past 2 yrs, but not very well. My gardeners have all come and gone, and I have decided if i don't work in my garden, NO ONE else will.

I grow some fruit and veg with success, but it is just the flowers etc I cannot get a handle of.

Thanking you all in advance.

I need help designing my garden pls.

I would like to include a doggie toilet area also.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I love established gardens, I want mine to be breathtaking, I want large, shrubs, and plants, very colourful, but just don't where to start.

I have taken pictures of my garden, and explained what tree/plant is there, also what position in relatin to sun.

I really want to start asap, so I begging for help!!!

Try Cornus alba elegantissima or Cornus 'Midwinter Fire' for winter interest. Underplant everywhere with bulbs for Spring.

Hi Volunteer - there are over 500 plants listed on my home page. Most of them have photos with a brief description of the plant. If you have several hours to spare, you might like to start there
