Why does my garden look raggedy?

Posted: 08/07/2014 at 20:38

I think you need some more substantial and reliable plants. Anemonopsis is a woodland plant that may need acid soil, I can't keep it. 

Acers are not competitive in a border, easily swamped in the early stages and a bit inclined to scorch in the sun.

Nice rose though

Something in the cheap and cheerful range would bulk up the planting and make it look more generous

Rozanne has a longer flowering period than the other two in my experience.

Bonsai tree

Bonsai is quoite a complex art. Not one I have.  I've seen demos of the top and root pruning required. You need a good book, video of something to find out how to do the necessary pruning to achieve a bonsai. The seeds will just be tree seeds, it's the treatment you give them that makes them into bonsai.

That's a baby tree that could be turned into a bonsai or a forest tree, depending on what happens to it.

Suggestions please

It's never too late

Dianthus deltoides, a packet of mixed colours. Little bits of the small sedums could be poked in, 

I had to look up the spelling of this one so you can have the linkhttp://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/32487/i-Erigeron-karvinskianus-i/Details

Several of the little campanulas will grow like that.

lobelia, it's come up in cracks for years here.

Plants love gaps in paving

They'll be those little larvae that disperse to pupate abseiling down on a thread.

Have you got a photo of the plants?

Mine looks a bit raggedy but if I were to cut off the finished flowers, (and do a bit of weeding), it would soon look a lot better
