Adapting to a new climate...any suggestions?
Hi everyone. I've moved from arid Australia to the southern part of the UK. I was a really keen gardener back home and have moved to a lovely place with a big garden that's been let go over the years and I want to make it something special. Could anyone tell me some great plants for clay-ish soil that doesn't mind a bit of snow now and then? I also have deer to contend with and don't want to start putting up fences and guards. I know nothing about cold climate gardening. All my years of experience have gone out the window here and I have to learn all over again. I'd like flowering plants mainly. We have a lot of conifers and hedges already. Ground covers and low growing shrubs are what I had in mind. Thanks for any suggestions.
