There was, I posted it as an attachment, but I don't think it worked. Perhaps it was too big. I joined Irish gardens last July bit I have not used it since. I would now like to "get involved" and share some pictures with others, but a lt of the topics seem to be locked.

Would appreciate any help.

I never really see any topics locked. This is the section you are posting in now and it has few if any locked posts http://www.gardenplansireland.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=35 I think the maximum upload size is 256 KB.

Wow, that's really inspiring to any of us who are starting a garden from scratch. Well done!
Are the beds planted totally with shrubs and grasses? It's a little difficult to see what they are....but you must be really pleased with the way it's all developing

Thanks Sive, the beds are mainly shrubs and grasses. We have also got quite a few spring bulbs which helps to lift it in March /April. We also have quite a few ground cover plants (alpines) which help with the weeding. We are really pleased with the result and now need to tackle the other half. I am inspired by Prudence's Jungle Garden. What a great website!!

What a difference a few years and some tender loving care makes. All your own work Her Outdoors? Did you follow a plan or select the plants as you went along, interested to find out?

My husband & I did it between us. We bought a load of plants from a garden centre that was closing down and planted them randomly. We have had to move a few as they got bigger and looked out of place. It worked quite well.

Well done, looks very well. Just wondering did you use any ground cover, as I have a slope to do and wondering what to put on it. If I don't use any will I have a problem with weeds? Confused

Hi SG, yes we used a membrane on the plateau's but not on the slopes. I wish we had because its quite a challenge to weed in wet slippery weather. Now the shrubs are established we can get away with the hoe. If you are starting it from scratch it would be worth even putting plastic down initially. You can always cut it away when the shrubs get established. We did that around some heathers on another area. Good Luck.

Thanks Her outdoors, Yes I am starting from scratch, so I better do it right and use a membrane. It's easier to do it right now than spend all summer weeding.
