Nearly there


Having only discovered the joys of gardedning this year and getting inspiration from some of the stunning photo’s on the site I decided to have a go at a rockery of sorts.
I did it by the book, hardcore etc. and dismantled a 20 year old pile of rocks at the top of the garden for my rocks.
I know the layout of the rocks is a little odd but being part disabled I need to use them as stepping stones to get to all parts for planting and weeding.
I am almost there, just a few more bits to go in, then let it settle down and the plants fill out.

If those pots are the ones you asked about re freezing, you could perhaps put the smaller ones into a larger deep tray or shallow box and fill in between them with something - compost, perlite, straw etc.

That little wall is beautiful - its all looking great. thanks for sharing.
