All Things Bright & Beautiful
Let me just state from the outset. I am not a gardener but I do like a nice a garden.
The garden we have at the moment is mainly concrete slabs but we hope to rectify that once we've decided exactly what it is we want to do with it.
Hubby wants a huge man shed at one end and I want a country style garden with a trees, grass and decking.
Most of my flowers this year are in pots. The rest are in a small border but they have still done reasonably well.
Fushia - Sunflower - Crocosmia
Phlox Paniculata 'Laura' - Helichrysum italicum (Curry Plant) - Oxalis
Sweet William - Lobelia Starship Scarlet - Begonia Red
Fushia - Petunia - Begonia Pink
Curry plant is great for ground cover, Phlox and Lobelia grow every year and get bigger each time, Fushia come back year after year and crocosmia is like a weed unless it's kept under control. Great for a small area you can just leave to it's own devices. It does die back in winter though and leaves a big blank space in the garden but you can't have everything.
