I spent some time doing a design for a long border in St Leonards. The client worked hard on weeding the garden. Myself and my assistant prepared the soil, planted, and mulched in spring 2020. This is a photo of its first summer. Shrubs include : David Austin roses, cotinus, cercis, physocarpus. Perennials include: achellias, centaurea Jordy, astrantias, hardy geraniums, erigeron quakeress, erigeron karvinskianus, cirsiums, campanula, digitalis, valeriana officinalis, thalictrum, salvias, ox-eye daisies, verbena bonariensis, and we sowed some annuals including poppies (Pap. somniferum), nigella, mauve cornflowers and planted cosmos.
