This was the garden in our new house when we moved in! Boring and nothing exciting! Good news we are finally getting somewhere..
Just the left hand border and the front to do ????!
I have a thing for Dahlias ????
Thats looking good ?
You need more flower beds.
That is absolutely great. Congratulations. Can I make a suggestion? You have three walls/ fences. Ideal for growing clematis. Because it grows tall but does not shade anything out, you will still be able to grow bedding plants underneath and they will quickly smother the fences and walls with flower. Make sure you get different types that will flower in succession from Spring to Autumn. Good luck - Ian.
Well done, the dahlias look fab. How about fruit trees against that wall?
What a transformation, a lot of thought and effort has gone into the changes you have made, and I would suggest you could add some colourful pots or troughs at the top end where the paving is (or remove the paving if you are able to, to add another flower bed). To draw more insects, bees and butterflies into your garden add plants that will attract them like lavender, honeysuckle or single flowered dahlias like Bishop of Auckland. Introducing a herb trough with rosemary and thyme included will attract bees too.
Great job. .....it's lovely to compare the original with the new
