I garden in Europe/ Switzerland, a cool zone (6-)7, Basel`s latitude is 47.57 (for comparison: London`s 51.3)New York`s 40.7), so we get some frost but have rather a mild climate, not a scorching one. Lots of rain, heavy good soil, folks grow wine/grapes in the neighboring countryside.
Have a small semi-shady border, mainly with Hosta, fern and Hellebores and an

allottment, full sun, with perennials (some for cut flowers), do dabble in veggies and am fond of Dahlias and the odd annual flowers.

And am getting into berries, playing around with espalier training and dwarf fruit trees because the plot is so little.

we got a second patch next to our present allotment in summer 2014, so we are busy fight weed and clearing up while keeping the established garden running.

oh, and I trained as a landscaper and studied all this landscape architecture stuff

I live in: Switzerland

My zone is: 6/7 Switzerland

My favorite forum 1 is Perennials.
