- keep a garden journal. it takes the guesswork out of when to sow seed and plant shrubs, what flowers when and for how long.
- what could be more practical than pots of colourful nasturtiums and culinaery herbs grouped near the kitchen door? pots are also useful for growing succykents that require excellent drainage or for confining vigorous growers such as bamboos and mint.
- plants of different structure and texture are essential in a garden to create year round interest. dont think because the garden is small that it automatically follows that plants must also be small.
