SallyfromtheValley asks: some advice on what to plant in a soggy garden please?
we have just moved to a house with a good size but neglected garden, and although i don’t have any gardening experience i would love to learn. we have started out by cutting right back some massive leylandi on one side, down to about 5ft. they look pretty rubbish although we now have loads more light in the garden. the other side of the garden borders our neighbours gardens with a wooden picket style fence about 5 ft high, and some very small shrubs. the ground here is very very wet. i would like to plant something that will eventually grow to about 5-6ft and be thick enough to bush out and hide the fence. ideally evergreen but maybe something that will flower yearly? i’d maybe like some thing tall at the back with something shorter in front so it looks really colourful in summer? any advice on what would be suitable to plant would be much appreciated. i live in lancashire, uk, if thats relevant. thanks

If I were you I’d get advice from a decent nursery. You could end up spending a lot of money on unsuitable plants that haven’t a hope of thriving. Take a sample of your soil with you, to get the pH done. That’s important too. Good luck!
