New Flower Bed

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.
