How does your garden grow? in GF - General Forum Posted 6 Apr 2021, 13:45:00 · Report reply Decided to add a bit of colour to the garden and made a small flower bed and put some Violas and some Stock (??? That's what it said on the pack) in. KidD helped, she's big into the garden at the minute. We don't really know what we're doing so we just spaced them put like the plant card said, and quickly watered them. Weeded quite a bit too but still lots of grass in the small flags. I have a weed burner which blasted it all with so hopefully I'll be able to brush it out. I'm already hating those slates. They're just a pain in the arse. Had to shift loads then cut through the plastic layer to get to the soil. No wonder everything is pot-based. I've spotted a place in the garden which gets virtually no direct sunlight during the day. I've moved a few things around so they get some sunlight and put my hardy grass in that corner. Someone mentioned an Acer, any other plants will not die in a purely shady spot?
