Do you remember his concrete rocks? 

How many people nowadays would make something like that? Yet it was such a simple idea.

It looks like Cerastium, Deb - or snow in summer. As the name suggests it has lots of white starry flowers through summer. It can be quite invasive in some gardens but it's useful ground cover.

Plants for new border

Posted: 22/02/2014 at 16:03

Tracey - another way of dealing with a long border is to plan a smaller one - say a couple of metres - and then repeat it. It gives continuity and stops it looking bitty. You may have to  alter a few plants here and there - for instance if some of the border is mostly in shade and some is mostly in sun, but there are also plants that can cope with those extremes.
