It is a large border so I have grown from plugs into large plants - osteospermums.polyanthus for the spring,lots of oriental poppies, aquilegia in variety. I have lots of ivy and holly up there as backdrop and ground cover so the holly blue has two broods a year there. There is also a great deal of buddleia already. My snowdrops are nearby for the winter as a lot of butterflies overwinter with me and come out to feed whenever the sun shines. I have lots of herbs growing in pots in the potager which I will plant out in the new border and use their terra cotta pots for bulbs for the spring. I have lots of large clumps of chives which i am thinking of splitting to make a pretty edging.
