Look like foxgloves. Verbascum leaves are a bit pointier I think.

Did I mention that all the seasons come together just like they seem to do at Chelsea.

So I walk through the Arch

 to the snowdrops on the edge of the woodland


 and up the hill to the bluebells.

 I do like some of these old gnarly trees

I like that. Just the place to have breakfast after my swim. Its on the edge of woodland, majestic mature oaks and beeches, and the smell coming from the sea of bluebells is intoxicating. I feel a walk coming on.

Of course there will be a few undergardeners to do all the heavy work. and the deer only eat grass, not the hellebores.

This fantasy garden is for all of us to share. You can add a description of what you would like, or just cut and paste a photo of some plant or part of a garden or anything you would like to see in a garden.

I will start off with the basics.  This garden is huge, but has some small intimate rooms, where we can rest and relax, and enjoy a cuppa and a natter.

It has perfect neutral loam mainly, but there is a patch of acidic soil, and also a patch of chalky soil.

The climate is almost mediteranean. Frost only in the depths of winter, it rains during the night, but the days have blue skies and a temperature of 20 to 25 C

Slugs are restricted to the compost heap area. There are no lily beetles, vine weevils or grey squirrels or rats.

Over to you... what do you want in the perfect fantasy garden...

Maybe I should start a fantasy thread...

The perfect garden.  Starting with verduns climate, perfect soil, and  no weeds, slugs, or lily beetles. Followed by a run through all the best nurseries, nabbing those plants they were keeping for Chelsea. of course I'd need  a diet coke man or three to do the heavy lifting and digging....

Fantasy garden

Other papers have fantasy football, or fantasy portfolio. As we can't do much in our real gardens at this time of year, let us have a fantasy garden
