My back gar­den has a small, paved area with high walls all around it. How can I make it a more invit­ing, green space?

Any plants will make the gar­den more wel­com­ing. You could also paint the walls a pale colour to re­flect light and high­light the plants you grow. Con­cen­trate on grow­ing climbers and wall shrubs, such as flow­er­ing Or­na­men­tal Quince, Euony­mus For­tunei and Dwarf Clema­tis, mixed in with other climb­ing plants. In front of these, have smaller shrubs and peren­ni­als, such as Se­dum Dianthus and Cat­mint. Add colour with hang­ing bas­kets and pots filled with peren­nial shrubs.
