It’s come along way from the equivalent post a year ago which ended with the first image in the slideshow below, but started with this one!
Cutting out new beds is the perfect job to do in winter as long as it’s not too soggy as you end up with mud all over the lawn. I did all of this in January and February. I even got some Irish Yew, Cornus Midwinter Flame and some grasses in as well.
The rest of the planting will come in spring. I’ll be getting lots of grasses and perrenials from my favourite plant nursery, Dove Cottage near Halifax
