I have a couple that are hardy and they stay in the ground all year round, but there are many that aren't hardy and need protection from the winter temps

So exciting!

Brilliant, I'm sure it is

Hi new to the forum and looking for design ideas

Your bed looks really good Coys, full of possiblities.

Don't think I can help on the modern idea.I have lots of curvey beds but my style is more of a cottage garden. I see aubrettia or something similar to hang and soften those bricks

Hello everyone, have had really good day, trip up to the local nursery to get some compost, came back with the compost and bags of free woodchipping.On the way back got some honesty seeds that were just in the hedge. Stopped off at a farm, got some gorgeous free range eggs which tasted lovely

All the bulbs have been planted, unless I get some more which it's highly likely. Transplanted a lot of my self seeded forget me nots and deadheaded all the cosmos which are still going strong.

Enjoyed the dancing, life is good

I'd be interested in the Statice mix, Calendula art shades and the Aubretia. Are you still interested in the false sunflowers?

I have some night scented stock that are very hanging, loose plants that don't look much in the day, but in the evening open up to very pretty flowers and smell beautiful. They don't take up root space and Iv'e grown them in pots

Keep going Forester, it's only your first lesson It's bound to feel really strange and awkard. I love the violin and would love to be able to play

Can't help at all on the practical side of things............. you could make some lovely things for the garden with bricks, the older the better

Today I feel so happy....
