New Rose Arch and Raised bed planters


By Scotkat


The Arch we bought but the planters have been made my husband.

Today it all happens and gets fixed it to garden to make secure.

I will now get my Golden Showers Roses planted I think I shall add Graham Thomas but need another 1 for other side and it was just by chance I found it.

And top of raised bed will be planted out with blue and white alpine plants and dwarf daffodills.

I shall add photos later before and after.

Scotkat ... it all sounds exciting I just love it when a new project gets underway. I bought Graham Thomas last year and the blooms and the perfume are wonderful.
Look forward to the next installment.
