Newbie Garden Photos II
This is the bones of my new Hot Border to be, built around two existing olive trees at the foot of a walled terrace. The Virburnum on the next terrace (I think that’s what it is) was also there. There is a hedge of orange pyracantha above that. Last summer I planted David Austin roses: just visible, a climbing orange Warm Welcome at the end on a hazel wigwam, red LD Braithwaite, red Darcy Bussell, a trio of Munstead Wood, which is more deep reddish pink so far and a Lady of Shallott that has been disappointingly creamy peach to date. Plus Berberis orange and red rockets. This photo was taken a couple of days ago so all a bit bare just now. I also planted some orange and purple tulips end of last October. I think this was too early here, they are coming up a bit deformed and red-tinged. I fear it might be fire blight. The rest of the spaces are destined for perennials - mainly orange plus purple salvias and agastaches for contrast. I am so getting obsessed with my new hobby!
