This is the path I laid last year. I have never tackled anything like this before and its a bit uneven but I am pleased with it. It was inspired by a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show last year. It has transformed this part of the garden.
Lupin 'Gallery Rose'
The warm weather has bought out the bees. I grow bee friendly plants with single open flowers which
they like. Doubles are not good as the insects can't get inside the flower. I only grow one double,
|Geranium himalayense 'Plenum' and some roses.|
This small patch at the side of the path has several self sown seedlings. Foxgloves, Aquilegia, Clary, Stipa tenuissima, Alcemilla mollis, violas and Rosa glauca. I'm not sure whether to leave them until they are bigger or move them now.
This is another self sown seedling, although I don't know where its come from as I have never grown it. It seems to be a dog rose, Rosa canina. I really like it. Unfortunately, its growing in the middle of an escallonia next to the path. Not a good place for a thorny plant, I keep having to cut bits off so that I don't get caught when I walk past.
