    "The only advantage in planting large perennials is the instant effect they will create, however it must be noted that large perennials will need an abundance of watering especially on light soils"

    "Small because they only last 2 years to get the best out of them"

    "Depends on the area they are going in but preferable small as they can be shaped and cut to size required"

    "It will depend on the size of your garden border. I prefer to suggest that there is a balance between both small and large perennials. Large perennials are likely to dominate over small ones, although they can provide accent and height in borders."
