When the weather was a lot warmer a few weeks back, I made great strides in making my garden look less like a waste ground and more like the garden of a home! I managed to dig out a border from what was once a rockery, and in the process uncovered about 20-30 boulders of Purbeck Stone, which I was then able to Freecycle (hooray! I didn’t have to lift them myself!) and then dug out a second border, removing edging stones and successfully transplanting a bit of turf – I am truly now the gardening master!!
But, after that, as the weather turned hideous I’ve not been out there much so have spent my time researching plants to go in the new borders. As I am only a fair weather gardener, I think I need some low-maintenance plants, perhaps a fuschia or magnolia for a bit of colour. In the second border I was thinking of some small, flowering plants, perhaps some petunias to go alongside a beautiful rose that’s already in the bed.
How about you? Are you a keen or not-so-keen gardener? What sort of plants would you use to add some colour to your garden? And perhaps a more important question, how would you like to win a beautiful pink Fairy Magnolia Blush Plant for your garden?
