    Hi,

    Choose a shape and line it round with Bricks on end or Stones,Low Fence, bottles plunged into the ground etc. Shapes can be anything you like, as long as you are happy with it, it is OK! Then dig over the area well and mix in Manure or

    fertilizer and or compost to give it a good start. If against a wall or the house, Place the tallest plants at the back and graduate them down to the front. If an Island bed,

    Place the tallest in the middle and work to the front. Hope that's enough for you to get started. Enjoy the journey ...........................

    You need to take in consideration the amount of sun you get and shade. This will help determine what plants will work best for your flower beds. Also the zone you live in.

    here is a video to help you out as well
