Down the driveway

Another nice day outside and more work done. I finally got around to planting all the things I got for my driveway bed. 30 plants of varying sizes. I dug in some compost, sand, and some fish, blood, and bone into the planting holes to loosen up the heavy soil and give them a good start. I planted ferns, foxgloves, lupins, clematis, a mock orange, a Christmas box, a rose, and a few other bits. There's still a section near the garage that needs some plants so I'll have a look around and see what I have that needs a home. I also planted a jasmine which needs something to climb up. So there's still some tweaking to do but at least the plants are in. I still have quite a few other plants around the garden that need to go in. I've been waiting on those part
ly because we need a new fence but it's looking like I'm going to have to get the plants in and when they come and do the fence I hope they have enough sense not to trample on everything and wreck it!! Now that that's done I can get some seeds started in the greenhouse.

  2. I love what you've done with the border, makes a world of difference to the eye don't you think? So much more inviting.

  3. Thank you Shaheen! Yes it has improved it 100%. There's are scented plants so it should smell nice too. Much more welcoming now!
