Marvellous sight in January! I am feeling envious. Did you plan it all out first or did it gradually develop? (nice to hear from you!)

It looks so colourful Dotty! I agree, you wouldn't think it was January either!

Thanks, DD. That sounds like a very long border or are you a demon pruner/cutter back? Also pleased to see you again!

it would be my fav too if I had such a lovely border. I am too alkaline for many of the shrubs mentioned.

Thanks to Janey….Wildrose….Siris..Shirley…Seaburn…. Kate…Anget for all your kind comments……
Well last week the head gardener decided he wanted to remove the Ceanothus!……so one thing led to another…. You know what it’s like when you have the bit between your teeth….out came the blueberry
(forgot to mention that was in there) one Correa… a Corokia a Coprosma and the Ceanothus!! That left a spindly 4 ft Daphne (forgot to mention that too and a Lagerstroemia…..Oh did I not mention that? that was the HGs reason for cleaning out the border…..more room for his favourite tree/shrub bought in France many…many moons ago…….. so now we have spaces……. well of course we have filled them……. more to follow 😄😄😄😄😄
