FRONT GARDEN

May 2018 – July 2018

End of May 2018 – Plot marked out roughly with canes for a new planting area.

This area is situated in the front garden, by a small wall, adjacent to the front gate.  It looked ideal for a new flower bed.

This was the beginning of June after planting up.  Plants include Geum, Heuchera, Astilbe, Salvia, Spirera, Coreopsis, Penstemon

Now the beginning of July 2018 and this is how it has developed

Iris now coming up against the wall.

The transformation is absolutely spectacular – we are so pleased with it.

Thursday 11th May 2017 – Front Garden

The Iris this year have loved the lack of water. They have tolerated the dry conditions very well despite the ground being rock hard and the flowers are beautiful.

Brachyglottis ‘Sunshine’

This plant comes from the daisy family and has beautiful silver-green leaves and yellow flowers in summer.

This small shrub can grow up to 3-5 feet tall, it prefers full sun and moist but well-drained soil.

It reminds me of the house where we lived as children where it grew well in our garden in Harborne.

At Springdale it grows in a lovely sunny spot, well drained and beside the drive.
