Trialing a Living Edge

I enjoy watching Gardening Australia each week and have finally managed to try out an idea I saw a while ago.You can see it here if you’re interested.

For years I’ve been struggling to get a particular garden bed looking good. It slopes and our “soil” is not at all encouraging being mostly clay and shale, this bed also has gravel from when the pavers were laid. I’ve now followed Tino’s technique and hope the plants will thrive.

Spring 2015

This year we were away seeking warmth for all of August but since it’s now officially Spring I thought I’d post photos of the flowers in the garden at the moment but the weather isn’t nice at all. It’s cold and wet so lots of the flowers are looking sad and some, like the Gazanias,  are refusing to face the world at all today. They were stunning 2 days ago so I’ll come back to them.

It seems to me the plants are enjoying this weather about as much as I am!
