wait till you get sick or bored of a plant and rip it out and try something new.
always think of new ideas and constantly change it. A couple of years ago my nan thought her garden was FINISHED :lol: :lol: and now in the years since the garden has changed so much icon_thumright

Just buy ever smaller plants.

Most of my purchases this year have been wee things like Cyclamen and Ajuga.

You are growing too many hardy plants. You need stuff that die each year and need replacing. :D

I can remember thinking the same thing back in the summer of 2009.

We then had 2 horrible winters in a row which left lots of holes to fill up again :|

I'm in the same boat Ken, just gotta wait for stuff to keel over or get shot of stuff.

Think I may get bored tho, I need something to do.

Your thinking so two dimensionally, that's so 2012!

2013 is all about the vertical gardening, Green walls, Green roofs.

Plus you could always give me some of your plants to give you some room for new ones :lol:

You know Adam,

I put Cyclemen in an hanging basket with other small plants, it looks great...pink and white with yellows and reds.

I probably have one of the smallest gardens on the site and don't think mine will ever be finished, you just have to be more inventive,

Get rid of the grass, that'll free up a bit of room!
