    Hi Lee, love the video. I want to create a wildlife area in my very sunny front garden which is about 4sq m.I want to keep a bit of lawn and add a border. I have 3 Buddleias in pots atm( Sungold,Moonlight and Royal Red). Would you recommend just one of them to go in the border? Think more than one would dominate the small area.

    Hey Ninja, wondering if you can offer me some advice? I'm fairly new to gardening and I'm attempting to reseed an existing lawn, I have removed most of the thatch with a rake (thanks to one of your previous videos) and now I'm attempting to scarify, hard work especially since the soil is full of clay (I'm in Newcastle under Lyme near Stoke), my grass is very yellow in parts and almost if not fully dead, I've been adding Miracle Gro Lawn Food in an attempt to revive it before patching up with fresh seed, would that help or do you recommend just ripping it all up and sowing fresh seed? I was hoping to just patch up but I'm not sure if it can work at this stage (mostly yellow grass) thanks!

    Hello. Love your videos. I live in Cornwall. I’ve just made some borders around my lawn. The soil is full of stones. I’m sifting the stones out from the soil before I plant it out. How deep should I clean out the soil? I’m currently digging down about 15cm. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thank you. Joseph

    Wow. This is gonna look amazing. I thought my lawn was big. This is exactly what I need to do. Save a lot of grass cutting lol

    So many options. You could get it all done within a year or two at one extreme, at the other see it as a long term project developed and modified over the years as parts mature and further ideas develop.

    Can't wait to see the results of your hard work. I particularly enjoy your instructional tips as I am relatively new to gardening despite being of ripe age! Currently struggling with a small, but completely shaded area,,,, any tips? Would love an episode on that subject. Keep smiling,

    This will be fantastic in the long run. Can`t wait(although i must) to see it Lee! I do have a cheeky question though..ive been given a Ribes Sanguineum Edward VII, can i grow this in a large pot for something long term? Not really any space in the borders to do it justice.
