Finally got round to my second border – two years on from the first…..
Mum had given me a load of plants that she’d raised from seed so that got me off to a great start. I also paid a visit to Whitehall garden centre and got a few larger plants – the climbing rose (Ena Harkness) and a climbing fuschia amongst other things. I also moved the buddleia from the other flower bed. It’s not looking too chipper at the moment but I’m sure it will recover. I can’t wait until it’s gets going. I think I’m going to get a wigwam-y thing for the climbing fuschia rather than train it against the wall. I leave that to my new climbing rose 🙂 Also, taking pride of place by the pond is a shrub rose that mum cultivated from Laura’s wedding bouquet. Hopefully that will take well and flourish too.
