My OH ended up fencing my garden as the deer ate most of it. I enjoy it so much more now. But there is some unfenced garden. The deer don't eat dahlias, peonies, rudbeckia, fuschias, caryopteris, knautia, stachys the lambs ears one, antirrhinums or foxgloves. Oh, I see you say they eat fuschias, they don't touch mine!

Does everyone else get "Wyre Forest" and no info when they click on my avator pic? I've reported it several times, no dif.

Hello Smokin Donkey. I live in France too, Dordogne. I'm always weeding, except when it's too hot. I'm sure I have more weeds than most people, is it something to do with France, even the ants and slugs are bigger here!

Perhaps Hypericum Calycinum would work.

Plant or weed?

Looks like aquilegia leaves. Aquilegia is usually lovely but it can start seeding itself and going back to being wild, then it can become a pest.

Shade and dry loving plants

I have a place like that where Periwinkle (Vinca) thrives. Only problem is that it's spread into a border where I don't want it. But if your place isn't on the end of a border it may be OK. Another plant I have in a dry shady place is Euonymus Silver Queen.

Hidden Valley was one of my favourites too. No imposing stately home, but a real gardener's garden with plants for all seasons. Tiny lanes leading to it.

Enjoyed the before and after pics and new project pics.

DHC, I like the disaster pot, what's the matter with it?

Thank you for the lovely photos. Sounds exciting getting to the sunken garden. You look young and slim.
