Hello, I have a part of my garden which needs to be designed!
I have recently had a wood burning stove fitted which meant that the old chimney pot had to be removed. As it had been on the roof for 80 years I did not want it taken away do it will be an ornamental feature in my garden. I have placed it in partial shade (morning sun only) and intend to plant it with alpines so I have put in a 50/50 grit compost mix.
Now, please suggest how it should be planted and I wiplaster which suggestions I like the best. The opening is small, about 8", so there can't be too many plants and I expect one or more to trail as well and uprights.
Please make as many suggestions as you like, and include pictures of drawings or plants, and thank you for your contribution.
The pot it will go in is in the thread, hopefully the right proportions and the right way around!
