Finished border – and the last work of 2017 complete

Leave a comment

The border I started planting last week is finished today – over 100 plants in a shady, north-facing border, including massed Box spheres, Hydrangeas, Sarcoccoca ‘Dragon’s Gate’, Viburnum tinus, evergreen Ferns, Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae, Hellebores, Pachysandra, Pulmonaria, Brunnera and Epimedium.  Next year we will be adding white and blue English bluebells and snowdrops.   There are many excellent groundcover plants included in this list of perennials, so the long border will fill out nicely next year.

I’m pleased with progress since Easter – when my Client began the Great Work of breaking up the old planting/landscaping in stylish fashion…

Roll on 2018 !

A very happy Christmas to everyone, and looking foward to a great gardening 2018 ahead.
