It is in desperate need of a flower-bed-make-over!
Under strict guidance I have been told not to bother trying to make the current situation work, but instead, start from scratch to create something that will be just right.
(While still saving my favourite plants of course).
I have had a go at mapping out the main components of the bed, which is probably about 3.5m x 1.5m. I have got this far in the deciding process…
* A medium-sized tree (yet to be chosen), which will hopefully provide a focal point at the end of the garden.
* A hellebore bed ~ the plants will be dotted around the base of the aforementioned tree. (Gosh, I love that word, ‘aforementioned’ ~ it’s like being in Pride and Prejudice or something).
* A beautifully striking yellow-twigged Cornus.
* My favourite Hydrangea, which has the coolest of green/white flowers.
However, exciting as this all is, I still have some gaps.
I need something low and interesting at the front and something tall with movement at the back.
Any ideas ~ my creative juices have run out!?
