    Hey everyone,

    I’ve just moved house (Yesterday!) and in the garden of my new house is a
    Flower bed.. in said flowerbed are a random
    Selection of flowers and plants but I have no idea what they are with the exception of some roses but are they dead? Or if not how an earth do I salvage them? I really want to make this bit a really nice area but I just don’t know what I’m doing! :( can anyone tell me what the other plants
    Are too? And again can I do anything to bring them back to life?



    many thanks in advance!
    Emily

      Welcome to Gardeners Corner Emily. As a novice you would be better posting in the 'New Gardeners' forum for your answers. :)

            Hi,

            You need to posts some pictures so we can see the plants you mention.

              What @Sheal means @Jymi riddler is that Emily will get a better response by posting in the appropriate area as this one is for introducing yourself to us.

                Good point!
                I must admit i usually just check out 'most recent' posts and a lot of others can be overlooked.
