Getting the 'proffessionals' in

Not cheating at all, these things you want to get right. A good local landscaper might be worth taking to. Ask around and see if anyone has had a recent work done in their gardens

Had these two plants for a couple of years now. The pink flowers make me think of the bleeding hearts but I thought that they were shrubs. They seem to be doing well as the have spread over the last couple of years although the croscosmia will take over this year I think.

I really like the purple one and would like to grow this in the scruffy corners of the garden

What are these two rockery plants called ?

I'm with hogweed on the first. It does spread but I quite like it.

Birds foot trefoil

I have a spot where it could drop it's seeds quite easily but it's doing well in the border I don't want to move it and risk it not flowering. Will collect some seeds and have a go at growing it.

Would like to introduce some clover into the lawn (?) as well

 

 

Anyone done any gardening today?

No gardening but will be planting out some of plants soon

Birds foot trefoil

I planted one of these in a border but I'm thinking that they would look around the edges of the lawn.

I don't have a strimmer so there's always slightly longer bits of grass. Are they good self seeders? Or is best to collect the seeds then grow into small plants.

I've got in mind some straggly corners with some pretty wild flowers dotted about.

I've done a bit of research but all I could find was how to get rid of it in lawns

Calendulas might grow fast enough as well cornflowers.
