Design your garden from day one with the workload you can see yourself keeping up with and avoid extravagant planting displays if you do not see yourself putting in the work to keep up with the tying back, dead heading and cutting back work more with simple flowering shrubs and rotate summer and winter bedding plants to inject colour with the changing seasons.
Plan your garden project with the time at your disposal be it a free bank holiday to get it all done or a set day of the week each week for a year. This will help you get it right when it comes to buying in the garden centre the one off weekend project takes a lot more research than a year long week in week out project where knowledge can be gained over the course of the project.
At Jones garden centre we have specific departments within our plant area to help you find the right plants for your garden such as Coastal plants, Shaded area plants and low growing and tall shrubs.
