Well, the fence man has repaired the knocked down fencing and I have safely restored my climbers. He was very nice and stepped around most of my planting which currently looks like this. Only had to remove three large clumps of Crocosmia which any most of you will know, doesn't even notice the upheaval and mostly got replanted to the left border, its leaves shielding a divided Hellebore from the hottest part of the day.
So, this area still has work to be done obviously, a bag of stones and pergola incoming but what I really want to know is what you guys suggest I plant next? This area was supposed to be a purple and white theme, but as much as I love what I have here so far, I find it a little...flat. It definitely needs contrasts (don't know how Sissinghurst manages the white garden?)
Poppies are out and looking splendid this year if a little battered by the recent weather.
