Christmas round-up 2018

As the last leaves depart from my Fig tree, and much else in the garden, here are just a few images of some projects in the final month of this year.


(Above) New client’s garden – beginning the order out of chaos – this photograph shows end of first session – and 14 bags of detritis cleared!

(Below) Client’s garden – one season’s work creating a well-planted shade bed on the right, and a completely new south-facing bed on the left.  Watch this space to see the hot colours requested springing forth!

(Below) Client’s new planting maturing nicely after one whole year – last perennials to add in the spring to the far bed infront of the screen.

(Below – New client’s front garden bed newly planted behind established Lonicera nitida hedge – again watch this space to see the yellow/blue border come together in the new year.

(Above) Tulips being added to the mixed native hedge planted last November – coming on nicely!

(Below) And my own Cotinus ‘Dusky Maiden’ looking rather lovely back lit by the low winter sun.

Merry Christmas and happy gardening to you all!
