• A garden of many zones, like this one, can be challenging to plant out. Recognise the different growing environments and select plants that will thrive in those conditions.
• When designing city gardens, always factor in the views from the house. Even narrow side paths can be transformed into delightful scenes, when viewed from inside.
• To save money and find unusual plants that can’t be found in your local nursery, order online. Mail-order specialists offer a variety of hard-to-get plants.
