The only plant thats been bought is the Rozanne Geranium. And it think it’s got to come out, very untidy.

    What an achievement @Lyn and in such a short space of time, well done to you for the planning, graft and foresight to realize that this area would make such an ideal space for wildlife, bees etc. with all the plants and flowers crammed in together. You must be pleased with the results.
    Can I ask what type of hedging you put in at the back of the bed, it appears to have grown very quickly. The birds will be missing the trees for nesting, perhaps the hedge will supply places to make their nest?

    Well done you two, and you were saying you didn't have your heart in the garden this year. It's lovely.

    What is the creamy-yellow flower just behind the cosmos foliage? (second picture from bottom). Is it an eschscholzia? It's a very pretty colour-did you grow it from seed?

    Yes that’s right, I bought a packet of seeds from Wilco, they were supposed to have been all whites, I don’t mind though, they’re very pretty.
    I like these mixed seeds, I sow them in a tray then prick out separately when I know what’s what.
