Behind The Wall – June 2015

The garden has looked as well this Spring as I can remember it. The last eight years of steady renovation of the soil and planting now means that only a small percentage of the planted areas still need to be upgraded. The dreaded ground elder now holds sway in only a few isolated pockets, It is hard not to be reminded of Jimi Hendrix’s song Purple Haze, on entering the Walled Garden, as Foxgloves, Sweet Rocket, Siberian Iris and wild Aquilegia, among others dominate the colour spectrum.

There now approaches the different transition form the Spring to Summer Garden, out with the tulips, wall flowers, Forget-me-nots and Honesty, to be replaced by Zinnias, Dahlias, Nicotania and Cosmos. In the meantime, if the conditions are right, the many climbing and shrub roses, will put on a fine show until the end of June.
