I'll update the thread with a few pictures at the weekend, not had chance to get out there tonight.

A few plants didn't establish as hoped, but planted some great ferns.

Border design ideas

Posted: 28/10/2014 at 11:02

I'm looking for a bit of inspiration so thought i'd see what you all thought.

I've just cleared a 15ft x 5ft North facing border. At the back is going to be 4 x JC Van Tol Standard holly bushes. The front of the border is my lawn. My idea is a line of Mahonia Soft Caress, a line of Leucothoe Red Lips with nice lillies and the odd alium growing in between. Keeping it quite formal but easy to maintain.

I'm open to ideas to completely change everything apart from the holly bushes, what would you do/plant?

When is the best time to lift and store the tubers? GW's recent e-mail said this month but some of mine still have some great flowers on them.

Looks to me like a Kilburn Glow.

I spotted these at the southport Flower Show this year, definitely one i'll be adding to the garden next year.

Thanks for all the kind comments. Yep I agree about the fence, that's next on the list It is in desperate need of replacing with new fence panels but i'm leaving them now until March when i'll replace the lot.

Here's a few close ups of the Dahlias

I thought i'd give a little shout out to a company i've used recently who have given me excellent service and advice. Eurodahlia -

I bought 12 dahlias but will definitely be back for more. Great service and great prices, can't ask for more.

Sorry C.J. that was a mistake from me, I did mean to say every other day, not twice a day I still think every other day at this time of year is far far too much water.

Our local golf course only waters the grass in the height of summer, and even then it might be once or twice a week when we have the odd heatwave, other than that it's left to nature to keep it watered.
