I am hoping to dig out alot of one of my borders and reshape the straight lawn edge. its quite a large border but is lacking in style. I have cut back and managed it since moving here but have so far concentrated on other areas of the garden.
As you can see, its filled with St John's Wort, a couple of very overgrown roses (which have now been cut right back over a period of 3 years (just the final cut of the thick old growth at the end of this year), 2 awfull Sycamore's (which have been cut out and killed - aswell as 4 Oak trees which have all been cut, just have to dig out the roots). I will be planting some Pink Pampas, an Everbloom Lilac, Lavatera & Buddleja, along with Lupins, Hollyhocks, Rose campion (thanks Lyn), and some smaller plants.
