I have been reading on the net about these types of gardens. And as I have been patiently (ok maybe not patiently) waiting for things to bloom I know that I really want this type of garden. But I don't understand exactly how to get it.
This what I have to work with.
Area: 14 ft wide, 4 ft high, 20 ft long.
Going to have to terrace it:
the bottom level is 18 inches deep.
the next level is 8 inches higher and also 18 inches deep. that is as far as I have gotten so far. plant
wise I have: 3 hosta: 4 peonies white, pink and red, Zinnia the tall ones, calendrum, carnations, moss roses
, 8 miniature snapdragons, 8 gladiola, 6 cannas, 3 dianthus, 2 ipomposis, 2 columbine, some dwarf evergreen ground cover and herbs.
I would like to interplant different flowers
so that the slope looks like it is in bloom from early spring
to late fall but I'm not understanding what I am reading well enough to know what to do. Can someone take me by the hand and tell me what to do?
