Garden of the Month – March 2011

Grow a Friendly Space

Planting in the space will comprise a back drop of climbers and evergreen shrubs, with swathes of colour provided by these and a collection of perennials.

The sunken garden will feature willowy bamboo in the tiled raised bed beneath the decked walkway at one end and moisture-loving Rodgersia with Loosestrife and Bergamot.

The area behind the gazebo will become a ‘wild’ area with the addition of shrubs especially chosen to attractive to wildlife.

Finally, the existing fences will be stained throughout to provide a uniform and attractive backdrop to the space
