Hi there, I need some help! We bought a new house last year and for the first time I had a massive garden! which my dogs love. you could tell that at somepoint it had been the previous owners pride and joy, however over the last couple of years it had started to get ontop of them. So when we moved in it was quite overgrown and I've tried my best however I'm somewhat out of my depth. I've never had to do much in the way of gardening before and I honestly have no clue what i'm doing. I think I have just about got on-top of the weeds and I've managed to plant some new plants in the gaps but I have a few niggling problems. firstly the plants are abit of a jumble, I was aiming for 'cottage garden' with mostly perennials to complment the existing roses and peony's however I've just created 'chaos' the colour scheme in the back is mostly 'pastels' which I've stuck with but it isn't looking very cohesive. I did try and buy bulk lots of plants because I thought that would be less chaotic but i'm not sure it works. Secondly I have a patch of crocasmia which I love because they are so pretty but the flaming orange doesn't seem to go with the pastels. Also it seems to be really struggling, I think it's the dry weather but a lot of it is brown and unsightly but lots of it is lying flat against the floor. Any tips on making it all look more cohesive and help my crocasmia.
