Wiltshire, United Kingdom
Looking for inspiration.
Last year i started work on the bit of land at the end of my driveway and although i was very happy with the result it wasnt quite what i wanted. Mainly because the majority of the plants were annuals and the plants which werent didnt survive the winter. So this year i'm starting from stratch as the only plant to survive was a garzania, and some foxgloves which had self seeded. At present i have about 9 foxgloves at the back on the right and i have added some red lupin to sit next to them so i was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what i could grow there. The fence makes the garden north west facing but despite this gets a lot of sun and like most i have clay soil.
I'm currently sucessfully growing from seed dahlias, sun flowers, calendula daisy mix and rudbeckia aries. And without sucess yet - rudbeckia gloriosa and goldsturm, so as you can tell i'd like the garden to be hot colours (red, yellow and orange). I'd also like to keep the cost down so either seeds which are easy to germinate or plants which are great self seeders like the foxgloves or plants which are relatively cheap to buy.
Thanks for reading and i look forward to any suggestions.
