hey all, i'm starting to plan out my garden for this year. i'm hoping to have a polytunnel, and a traditional outside plot. i've a fair bit of room, and am starting from scratch. i'd like some advice, if possible, on layout. also, the ground here is fairly damp most times of the year, so i was wondering about raised beds etc. i'd love to have a very traditional style garden, lots of sweetpea and other plants misex in with veg, pots, planters etc. so, if anyone has any ideas i'd love to hear them.

raised beds are good on heavy wet soil.

A few tips: put some of your flowers where you can see and enjoy them from indoors, say the kitchen window.......we spend a lot of time indoors in this country! Your herbs need to be easily reached from the kitchen door, and your raised beds need full sunshine.
