I am having a 850 square feet flower garden, and it is going to bed english/cottage style. its going to be mostly "elegant" flowers, like roses, lavender, eustoma, lillies sweet peas, angelonia, foxglove ect, that all bloom in summer, and are all shades of pink, purple, or white. there is also going to be a small fountain in the middle of the garden with a a rock walk way to and around it, made with rocks with mother of thyme growing between them . also the garden will be surrounded by a short lattice fence, and border like flower bed that it 8 feet up sitting on poles going all around the lattice fence with morning glories hanging down from them. And at the back, is a tall lattice fence 8 feet high with clematises growing up them. and also a arch at the entrance. i'm in zone 5 ontario canada. any creative ideas, or good plants to add will be great! thanks in advance.

I have a serious problem with clover in my flower garden... I'm hesitent to use chemicals because I do not know what their effect would be on the flowers and other plants.
