Cottage garden lawn ideas?

Mmmm Never been too keen on packets of seed mixes for meadows. Not all grow very well because not mixed for your soil. Having said that love the link you've posted Lindsay. I would go for the Annual wild flower seed mix. Don't think you could go wrong with that. Easy to pull out if you don't like/want will self seed year after year and native plants so good for our wildlife.

Busy seems right with most but reckon 6 is snowberry too. You may decide to pull it out as it sends suckers up all over the place!

4 Skimmia.

Know the last one but can I for the life of me remember the name?!!!  Have a feeling it sounds quite exotic. Will probably remember at 2 in the morning.

Actually looks like plain old laurel mimi. If it is and you want to hack...I mean cut.... off the worst  bits it won't do it any harm.

MORNING FORKERS

Morning all  No time to read off to Bramdean garden shortly. Been a lovely weekend. Ignored the jobs to do list in my head and went and had strawberries and cream with champagne at a friends house warming yesterday followed by BBQ and today NGS garden. So nice to relax in the now cooler weather after being cooked all last week. Hope all well and happy. Will probably bore you all to tears later describing garden lol.

Thanks auntie couldn't have put it better myself  So Inspiration get sausage making! Take a look at your adjacent neighbours and see if theres anything you like. If they can grow it you can too.

Why is your hedge so much higher one side than the other? Is it different?  

Is this correct ???

LOL Simple Cornish guy? Me thinks not....While you are here when are you going to enlarge the pics of your garden so I can see whats in it? You as a plantsman must know I have to know lol. 

What tree/shrub is this?

Posted: 20/07/2013 at 10:20

Pretty sure its beech. Hedge or tree like that growing anywhere near you? Like Dove said take it out! 

Is this correct ???
