Some of the plants in your garden only like acid soil

What are you going to replace it with ighton?

Lovely location where you live.

ighten

Its size will be changed and flags will be used (the ground floor of the barn is flagged) and we have lots that we managed to save during the restoration.

More in keeping then than concrete ighton.


Oh dear David a bit of a mess to clear up.  Might be a blessing as it will open up a new area and you can always replace your daphne.

Wintersong

Looking good Chris, I see your very own 'Nigel' likes to sneak on lots of pics  Gardens look better with a dog in (or a cat ). I'll post one later of my 'Nigel' guarding the apple tree on Tuesday

A few more from this morning.

The lane above the barn already has some nice ferns and foxgloves appearing naturally. I want this year to make sure these really get maximum support by controlling the nettles, himalayan balsam  and brambles that last year buried everything.


 


 The removal of the concrete is an ongoing project and it will be nice when this area is restored with more natural looking flags. The smaller walled area in front has now been reseeded and planted..


 Our small woodland area across from this garden will be thinned out a little to let some light down to the floor this year.I really want to get masses of Hellebores and other  woodland flowers naturalised in here.  When is the best time to plant them?

Ighten  - what a lovely project you have. Hard work though! Those walls are beautiful. Can't beat them as a boundary or a terrace. You can plant things any  time really if they're in pots. Some native primulas and bluebells would be lovely in there. If you have some snowdrops in the green they can be planted now. Think many companies will have finished selling them for this year - you'll find loads online though so you can be primed for the end of next winter to get some  

Lovely photos everyone. Thanks for sharing. 

Bautiful tulips ighten, a must have for me next year.
