Rock Garden Renewal part 2.
This is the view from the west. I forgot to put a title to the previous Blog, so after writing quite a lot , lost it all. There are 47 Permanent Residents in the North Island and 8 Summer visitors. mostly Succulents. I have cut down the Cotton Lavender (Santolina) and the Lavender Munstead. and will probably replace them with younger plants of the same. There is a Cotoneaster horizontalis at the east end which I have left in the past because of the berries, but this year a poor show has given me an excuse to cut it into a mound.
My Son gave me a book for my Birthday entitled NIWAKI. About pruning and shaping trees in the Japanese way. Which I have tended to do for a long time, but this jolted me into going out with the secateurs and shears, to do even more Niwaki. No doubt this has encouraged me to renew this Rock Garden.
