General planting advice please!!
My garden is very green - hedges, trees, shrubs etc; there are only 2 flower beds for planting and am looking to make these really pretty for early May when I am having a garden party. What should I be planting to have lots of colour and fullness?
I have quite a lot of half oak barrels and hanging baskets too that I haven't touched since I filled them 3 years ago so all need to be re-done, again what could I plant to have minimum effort and big impact?
Finally, we have a long archway that was covered with russian ivy which we had removed as it was uncontrollable, we planted 2 winter flowering jasmine 2 summers ago after being told this was fast growing and would give good covereage, but they have only covered about 3m of the trellis, any other suggestions - preferably something that gives coverage all year round and is fast growing?
Any other tips suggestions for making a garden look lovely in a hurry??
