We moved to Chepstow 2 years ago and are busy creating a garden, almost from scratch. Garden is approximately 20MX25M.Clay soil which is heavy in places. Bags and bags of grit as well as compost are making it more workable. Both love, peonies, echinacea, rudbeckia, clematis, lonicera. Catholic tastes really! Also like unusual shrubs that can thrive in a clay based soil.
