the forum made me think a little today......
many of us....maybe not quite so much for me down here....are protecting their plants for the winter. Sure, they may look unattractive with their fleece covers but in a few weeks' time ...yep, just a few weeks....they will be growing again; if protected.
an "all year round garden". What exactly does that mean? Does it mean no herbaceous plants, no grasses, no tender stuff, no exotics? None of these contribute to an all year round garden
i grow lots of evergreens but masses of plants that disappear soon ....a photo in winter will show lots of colour, shape and interest. Many tender plants remain in place but some are dug up to be replaced with specimen wallflowers.
Low maintenance too? Similarly an all year round garden cannot include annuals, can it?
So....an all year round garden! Who has one? And why do you claim that? Maybe we could post pictures of our gardens in winter to illustrate the point
