Anybody know anything about gardening? I've just spent the afternoon clearing a large quantity of growth from the front of my flat and digging over the border.

I'm after suggestions for what to do the border, it is against a north-facing wall hence fairly shaded and dry. I've had one suggestion of covering the whole thing in black polythene, then covering that in bark chips, and cutting holes through to the soil. That seems a reasonable way of keeping weeds down, comments? What sort of plants would work there?

Next job is to try to find one of the cards that periodically gets pushed through the door by tradesmen and find somebody to hack about 8' off the top of my hedge, and take that and today's rubbish away.
