plants for southern aspect
We have a new house, south facing. We just put in a cement garden bed across the front of the house. It needs plants...easy care, low so as not to interfere with the view up to 60cm would be ok, I think. There are natives in our other plantings. The bed is 60 cm deep 110 wide, runs across the entire front broken with steps to the door. 5 metres + 7 metres at the end of the 7 metres it drops back to a deeper corner with eastern aspect. We have had a lot of frosts. Can you recommend a planting for this area, please?
