Now that's a thought Sara! Always good to add height I suppose - but there is another pergola right next to this bed - would they work together, you think?

thanks WW - swaping in a tiny bed could be tricky, yes...

Do cowslips and camassis last the summer? I haven't any of those. My fritillaries finished weeks ago - they were lovely. Have a few in amongst some other shrubs.

Off to google the ones I don't know!

Is it in a pot?

It might still be ok - I think it's a case of wait and see - good luck!

...and to finish answering your question Fg yes, I would love something softer...the slate, raised beds etc already add a certain hardness to my garden, so the plants I have are mainly softer and I'm worried that if I have anything too formal in that middle bed it'll be too much...

Oooh I love those daisies Dove.

Thanks FG - I think I know the ones you mean.

So maybe 2 or 3 of them, and surround with...winter/spring bulbs, sterbergia, and possibly something more airy, wispy, to balance out the very neat, rounded forms of the hebes...

Dove

I know what you mean about the shearing - the thought had crossed my mind! But there are so many plants on their side now and buds coming through on the tallest plants that I'm worried I'll just kill'em all off...how much would you shear? 

Wish you'd come and do it for me - I'd throw in some of that salami...
