Hello! I have just bought my own home and finally have my own little
Problem is i've never been green fingered or have any idea about
I have a small area of grass which i intend to keep but put a bedding
around the edge. My garden is south facing so has the sun on it a lot
and the soil is quite dry.
What do you think i should do? Put extra fertaliser in the soil? and
what type of plants are best to have in the sun?
Any advise would be greatful. thankyou!
Study and think before you act. Determine what YOU want to do in the
garden, gardens have many possible uses and should be made according to the
soil and climate, and the needs and abilities of the users. There is no one
size fits all.
Draw a plan. Consider the direction of wind and sun. Get some design books
from the library. Talk to neighbours. Join the garden club. Don't
fertilise until you know what is growing (or is to grow) there and that it
needs it. Find out which plants grow best in the sun and which ones don't,
there are far too many to list now, garden books often categorise according
to things like full sun, part sun and shade.
Start by looking at what is in the neighborhood in the same exposure. Talk to
and they may be bringing you plants when they divide or if they buy too many. My
mother gave away so many plants people even now talk about the various plants
have from her tho she has been gone some 10 years.
