My garden Mojo has returned!   But it's costing me a fortune  . 

Im really pleased with my old 'feather bed' for those who remember ( full of grasses), this year I had a great combination of Mrs Bradshaw geums with loads of nigella, amazing, but nigella is finishing now so not sure what's gonna happen next and not sure when the geum will finish. 

The allium bed is frankly bare this year. lovely tulips in spring but nothing now until the phlox get going. Lots of space for other lilacs next year. 

The arbour has had a lick of bright purple paint (pansy) ,not what I would have chosen this year but it's been waiting in the shed for 3 years! 

My current project ( always need at least one!) is to make something a little Japanese themed on the paved area so all in planters. Very difficult as japanese style requires space and calm, not really my thing in a garden, more cram it full mentality. So far I have a 5' purple Acer (good start), some hostas, a harts tong fern and a st

hi, just bought two of these and hoping someone may have some experience with them. I looked them up and it says they are hardy, plant with tubour just showing in free draining soil.

Has anyone grown these and any tips? 

Some bits have broken off so any advice how to keep them would be great too.

thank you. x

LOVELY everyone, love looking at all your flowers.

Thanks for all your comments on germ/nigella, I'm dreading IT finishing actually! Any suggestions welcome as to what to replace them with?

Yam, I don't know what the last pic is sorry.

Hi Runny, I'm not around much these days, and it's so hard to keep up when I am.

The little yellow flower looks like an onion / tiny allium. I had them years ago, didn't like yellow at the time, they went everywhere and even today I've dug one out! 

Hi FB, lavender bed looking great, I've dug a poppy out today too.

Love the flower arrangement and also the clematis with blue on the back of the petals.
