Is anyone able to help please? I have too much earth on show between my shrubs and bulbs, which means endless weeding. Do you have any suggestions for plants I can add to fill in the gaps? I have mainly pink and purple colours.
I suggest that you plant more of the plants that you have, in groups of 3, 5 or 7 depending on the space available.
You could then hoe between them and mulch with compost to keep weeding to a minimum.
Thanks for the ideas. Hopefully it will be warm enough to get along to the garden centre soon and then i can put in some new plants.
There are some lovely perennial geraniums in pinks and purples that are good and filling in gaps.
I agree, Busy-Lizzie - I use Geranium wallichianum 'Buxton's Variety' all around my garden. It's fast growing, has both pretty leaves and flowers and it makes a great low-growing ground-cover.
Gazanias smile when the sun shines..I have found them more hardy than advertised. Has anyone else nursed them through winter to get a second season and were they as good?
I'd go for a good mixture of easy going perennials, something for all seasons. The bees will love you.
