The new border is coming along! I’ve planted a few more things that Mum has given me. The weather has been warm and damp, and the slugs have been having a field day! In particular, they have completely eaten the coreopsis and some cosmos seedlings I put out at the weekend. I am using slug pellets, but must admit I don’t like using them, in case another animal (bird or frog) eats the dying slug. YUK! I hate slugs!
The large shrubs which have been kept when we cleared the border are a blue hibiscus and a philadelphus.
The end of this border is looking very lush. I do love a dark purple leaf amongst the green. This is an elder.
And on the other side, these red poppies are stealing the show!
I am linking up with Helen at The Patient Gardener, for a month end look at our gardens.
