What beautiful pictures from you all

LilyP, have not seen your garden before, and am now swooning.  Any before and after photos to help us share the journey?  You must spend hours out there - what bliss

Lovely ones have gone before. I too would love a walled garden 

Here are some of my full bed:

From another angle:

And finally, my lovely rudbeckia:

Looking really good Panda.  Well established now.  The Rudbeckias glow

16/08/2014 at 19:36

Brilliant border Panda - just how I like them  Is that salvia hotlips making such a fantastic clump?  Love the echinaceas too - plus the rose is really going for it up your arch.  Bet you are chuffed to bits

Right, where's that envy thread.  Walled Garden - my dream.

Panda thats really filled out, looks lovely 

16/08/2014 at 20:42

What a beautiful deep border Panda, really beautiful

It's looking lovely, Panda.

Thanks  It might be a bit messy but I like it  All the echinacea were supposed to be purple!

Chicky, that is indeed salvia hot lips  It's really taken off

Panda looking forward to a perv at your new arch and tree

Hopefully pics by the end of the week

Everyone's gardens look gorgeous, I definitely need some autumn colour in my borders as they look very sad now.  The Rudbeckia, is that one plant that has spread or more than one?  I was just wondering how much they sorted and whether I should get more than one?

Great pics guys

Love Panda's rudbeckia and the osteospermum looks great too 

18/08/2014 at 09:11


Chicky thank you for interest, we do indeed spend hours but actually this is a peaceful Tim. I just sit and watch the birds., let me see what I can show you

 Sorry about this chaos, the pictures have chosen their own way to go on, even an upside down one?

18/08/2014 at 09:13

Oh lily pilly I'm more in love with your garden than ever 

Beautiful pics, love zooming in and dreaming I'm there 

18/08/2014 at 09:16

These are lovely pix Panda and LP. I'm very impressed with how  you garden upside down as well Lily...

Love the huge pot under the arch.  Do you leave it as a big specimen in its' own right, or plant it up in different ways through the year?

and sitting 'watching' is one of life's great joys 

18/08/2014 at 09:39


Oh Beaus mum I wish you were too, I could give you a fork and a trowel! Lol

i will try one or two more to give perspective. Meantime can anyone tell me why my photos insist in loading themselves upside down argggggh

Pot is actually an old urn which was nicked by someone long before us. There used to be a huge castle here and when it was demolished in the 20 s lots of stone ornament mysteriously disappeared but pop up now and then in the village must have taken an army to move it. We just keep it full of water will try the photos again later
