Hi everyone, me and my partner are new to the forum. We have just moved into a new build bungalow with a lovely sized garden. We are having raised beds put in this weekend made out of railway sleepers and in November we are planning to plant a native hedgerow. We are trying to get a cottage feel planting theme and only want to use perennials. I have gardened for family members but never had my own garden with a blank canvas. In time we hope to get garden birds drawn in. Any advice/help/recommendations would be greatly appreciated and we will keep giving updates here. Thanks in advance.
