I'm planning on planting some flowers in a raised bed near my planned mandala garden. It will be a dedicated flower bed (at least to start!) and I am planting native shrubs and flowers in teh front garden. I want some pretties, ideally some that would be good as cut flowers occasionally. I am on the Adelaide plains, it doesn't get too cold or frotsy usually, but summer can be a bit of a stinker. I've especially got an eye out for things that attract insects or other good garden buddies. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions that they would like to share? Or good resources for planning a year-round flowering garden? Along the fences I am going to plant a couple of passionfruits as well as a climbing rose of some sort, and jasmine (it really isn't summer without that smell). I totally adore poppies, tulips and ranaculas, but I'll choose double-function over single, if anyone has any better suggestions. What are your floral favourites?
