The first picture shows what we started off with in 2004 and the bottom one what we had achieved by 2014. We soon realised that just clearing the area would not work as what little soil there was got washed to the bottom of the slope in the autumn rains..Since then we have terraced the slope to provide planting areas, incorporated homemade compost and planted by trial and error. Sedums and sempervivums do well, verbascum, lavender, sage, valerian romps everywhere, iris and muscari, and a beautiful cyanara.
We are quite proud of what we have achieved as the garden at various levels is a joy to be in and gives beautiful view up the valley to the mountains.
