Lee visits a Woodland garden
This week we begin our tour of other peoples gardens, and the first stop for the next 3 weeks is Dawns garden. Set in a woodland environment, this north facing garden has pockets of special plants dotted here and there, with a wonderful use of colour repeated throughout each border. The rain makes it look like an autumn day, but it didn't put us off having a good look around.
The Agapanthus I planted a few weeks ago are really flowering well now, and this week the pink Echinacea (also known as the cone flower) have come into flower. It’s a beautiful plant and is peering through other grasses and perennials in the border and will continue to flower for a good while yet. It came through the winter very well, and I presume that it’s the fact that it’s growing in a raised bed rather than in the local heavy clay soil which would have been too wet and cold for it.
