1 Larger ar­eas make more of an im­pact vis­ually, so avoid hav­ing lots of small, fid­dly beds. 2 Use small-flow­ered clema­tis and plant them deeply, so the soil level in the pot is 10cm (4in) be­low the ground. Keep them very well wa­tered. 3 Try to have some wa­ter in your gar­den be­cause it a racts a lot of wildlife and cre­ates a serene at­mos­phere, so place a seat nearby. 4 For an in­for­mal co age look, paths are im­por­tant. Straight brick paths work well and add struc­ture in win­ter. Gravel’s best for curv­ing paths. 5 The best au­tumn colour comes from shrubs and trees. They help shel­ter peren­ni­als and bulbs in win­ter and also drain the soil. 6 Al­ways use blue flow­ers in your gar­den. They look stun­ning in evening light. It’s also good with white and yel­low.
