Very fetching TT love the planting combination. Did you make the planter with broken slabs or was it a bought one.

26 Mar, 2010

 

Thanks Sandra, Volval, Amy and Stroller....
I made the planter some years ago at my previous home, and somehow managed to bring it with me to my new garden. I must have used strong concrete, because the slabs all stayed fixed to eachother. LOL.

Super effect TT just love it, nice to see the tulips are enjoying the sunshine :o)

26 Mar, 2010

 

I love the idea of your planter, TT (and the thought of you moving it to your new home all intact). I wouldn't have left it behind either. Beautiful planting. You certainly have an artistic flair.

26 Mar, 2010

Lovely display Terra

30 Mar, 2010

 

Hi Pg, Anne and Richard...
Thanks...
I'm pleased you like this design... :o)

30 Mar, 2010

 

That's a pretty mix Terratonie. The heathers do well don't they and so many varieties to choose from.

30 Mar, 2010

 

Hi Linda...
Yes...heathers have lovely colours.
Thanks. :o)

30 Mar, 2010

 

Very very beautiful and artistic.

30 Mar, 2010

 

Hello Tommy... thank you... :o)

30 Mar, 2010

 

Several gardens in this close have large heathers growing and the wild bees have been feeding from them. The soil must be right for them here.

30 Mar, 2010

 

Thats beautiful Terra, a real eye-catcher. :o)

30 Mar, 2010

 

Thanks, Sandra....
It's still flowering well in the rain ! :o)

30 Mar, 2010

 

Terratoonie:

Very beautiful flowers! Love the stone table! : > )

31 Mar, 2010

 

Hi Delonix...
Many thanks...
I made the stone feature from broken pavings :o)

31 Mar, 2010

 

Terratoonie:

Wow! You're very creative and skillful with stone building! : > )

31 Mar, 2010

 

Lol. Thanks.
Broken pavings...
I just made up the design as I built it..
.. the same way I do with most things in my garden...
no exact plans.. :o)

31 Mar, 2010

 

Gosh TT, I didn't realise you'd made it yourself - clever girl !!

31 Mar, 2010

 

Hi Terry60 ~ I made this some years ago....
The tricky bit was, after a few years, moving it with me to my current home...
...all the paving pieces stayed fixed together, so it must be strong concrete.. Lol. :o)

31 Mar, 2010

 

Blimey - it must weigh a ton (or more!!) - very pretty tho'

31 Mar, 2010

 

Which heathers are they Tt?

31 Mar, 2010

 

I love the Tulips Tt..They look as if they are showing us your Feature!
Looks so wonderful...

31 Mar, 2010

 

Hi Freesia..
Thanks.. I'm very pleased with the tulips. :o)
Not sure of the heather varieties, Bornagain.
If I find labels I'll add another comment on this thread....

1 Apr, 2010

labels, will look forward to your comment....: >))

how did I miss this??? looks gorgeous, neatly compact - what's the base made of? and how's it looking now?

28 Mar, 2014

 

Hi Fran .. Thanks.
the base is just broken pavings ...
It looks quite similar now...
the heathers have spread a bit ...

28 Mar, 2014

 

good to know.

now all i need is a lorryload of broken paving ...
