As requested by Shirl, here are some images taken a little further away to give more of a feel for the garden in general.
I still have a long way to go, but as the years pass and I gain more experience things get that little bit easier. My main problem is having far too much time to stop and stare! Ha ha, I actually do more daydreaming than gardening!
So the garden is lagging behind a little bit due to my indecisiveness and procrastination putting off getting the plants put in the ground.
Some borders are far more successful than others, but as I get to grip with things and remove unwanted shrubs/plants then things should hopefully begin to flow more successfully. This year, as with last has pretty much been about getting things in the garden and little thought has been put into the actual design. Instead I have long-term plans that will hopefully begin to take shape over the coming years.
Learning to propagate is high on my agenda at the moment, but with so many plants and so many different techniques, right now it’s rather over-whelming and I am struggling. So currently I’m sticking to taking seeds or dividing plants – I have had a go at taking softwood cuttings of the Jasmine though… So we’ll have to wait and see how they cope over the winter!
And with the help of the very helpful and kind Cheryl , I hope to also have some ragged robin, red campion, echinops and fox and cubs to add to the collection next summer!
