hi all
This forum hasn't been written on for a few years so hoping this might get a look in! We brought a house last year which had a very neglected garden made up of a mix of lawn, roses and ferns - very strange. it was very ratty and unloved and had horrendous ground ivy. we are in quite a steep valley and its heavy clay soil, and because of the low sheltered position its very hot and sheltered. Much more suited to tropicals - We've completely dug over the garden and put terraces in and the plants so far are all thriving - however I'm now stuck. i simply can't figure out what to plant and where. I'm usually really good at this stuff but this one is stumping me. I'd be grateful for any advice or thoughts you have on this. Photos below/ attached to show its current state.

Hi Mina, if you want to find planting inspiration why not check out our show gardens and designers gardens? Each garden profile has a plant list to help you.

Or if you need more bespoke advice why not contact one of our garden designer members which you can find here in our garden designer directory.

I hope that helps?

Cheers, Nicola
