|slowly taking shape|
We carried on clearing the ivy that had got out of control in this area of the garden, and found several holly and hawthorn seedlings - far more than there is room for.
Before putting down some of the bark chippings we planted some ferns, foxgloves and anemones. The log pile was moved to next to our water butt and some decorative pieces of wood put next to the waters edge
Still quite a bit of work to do restoring this area. There is a Rowen that needs to be removed but we are only going to remove the main trunk, leaving the suckers to grow.
The plants we got today are:-
myosotis palustris water forget-me-not
preslia cervina alba white water spearmint
mimulus ringens lavendar musk
mazus reptans blue blue mazus
gratiola officinalis hedge hyssop
cotula coronopifolia golden buttons
Although we are a little bit worried about the mint getting out of hand the forget-me-not is a plant we have grown before and loved. Just need some ragged robin now, which may have to wait till next year because we have seed for it.
