Hi it took me awhile to find the hardiness zone only the botanical gardens knew.
Christchurch,s zone is a 7 I have a large area to cover and I,m weed matting around plants in certain parts of the garden to cut down on the maintainance of it,I already have lots of roses and the Dahlia,s and fuchsia,s are just starting to revive after winter and the delphiniums and hollyhocks and lilac,s are in bloom I,m looking for some interesting plants that will add to the beauty of the garden and will only require the inimum of attention.
Thanks Lara
