Verd- it's rubbish........

Seriously my love....how could you possibly squeeze in another plant- no wonder you're always busy!

And you'll be wanting that Black Dragon Iris...

Looks beautiful Verdi. A plantsman's plot right enough

Impressive! I love your structure and colour contrasts.

26/06/2013 at 19:12

Omg! Stunning. So much work and expertise. So envious. Can't wait to take a closer look on pc ( rather than on phone)

Don't like it Verd.

Love it. Now I know why you are such a busy bee and so knowledgeble.

Any chance of seeing anything untidy or a work area

Thanks for sharing.

It's fantastic - I'm so jealous I could spit!  It must have taken years of hard graft to achieve, but what I really admire is the level of planning and skill to organise the planting so that everything has a place, but the place looks unplanned and natural.  I love it.

26/06/2013 at 19:45

wow 

26/06/2013 at 19:56

Absolutely beautiful

26/06/2013 at 20:06

Pressure from my niece to post.......lol

However it's my grasses that I love....they are there but not flowering  for few weeks yet.  Also agastaches, dahlias, salvias, echinaceas and other summer stuff that is yet to flower so it's all interim at moment. But it's fairly low maintenance too.  Love to have the estate that woody has though!

26/06/2013 at 20:23

I think our ideas of low maintenance may be different .....

26/06/2013 at 20:29

What a lovely garden!

Verdun that's gorgeous, I can only dream of a garden that looks that good.  I need about 4 times the space I have now!

26/06/2013 at 20:43

Sooooo lovely .  Looks absolutely beautiful

Make sure you post again when the next wave of flowers takes over ....

26/06/2013 at 20:44

Fantastic, Verdun,

Thats looks like the winner for the best kept garden to me.

Have you entered for the Daily Mail Garden of the year? I think you'd be in with a good chance.

26/06/2013 at 20:47

Verdun, I hate it.  It's far, far to cluttered and untidy.  You really ought to spend more time on it.

I am green with envy.  It is absolutely beautiful.  So pleased you finally got round to posting your pics.  If it was mine, I would want everyone to see what I had created. 

Thank you Verdun.

Like I said, ideally wanted to post in few weeks just to show off the grasses and agastaches.  Agastaches are just starting and if you havent grown the new varieties.....blue boa, sangria, black adder, raspberry summer etc...then you are missing great stuff folks.  And, they ARE low maintenance.  What else flowers all summer, gives height, tremendous flower colour in pinks, blues, purples, reds on well behaved non-staking plants?  Will post pictures of these in full flower to convince you.

26/06/2013 at 20:52

You're so nice Tina.....as always

26/06/2013 at 21:01

Wonderful Verdun. Love the way that grass is it Stipa Gigantea (in the last picture) - looks like a firworks at the back of the flowers.

It must be a pleasure to work in as well as to look at.

thank you

26/06/2013 at 21:17

Are others willing to share pics?  I know it's a hard act to follow, but I'd love to see everyone's ideas...

Kirsty - if you like looking at photos (I do !!) then there are a couple of threads on here you might like.  One is 'Garden Gallery 2013', and the other is 'Summer has arrived'.  They are pretty much pics and nothing else (well the odd bit of chat here and there too) - enjoy
