Help! I need some ideas!
I’ve been working on the long side garden today…virtually everything in the ground has been moved or is out of the ground waiting to be re-placed…
But, I’ve got two big spaces which I’m not sure what to do with. The first is the far end of the second ‘circle’…
It’s the view through the ‘archway to be’…so it needs to be quite impressive…and able to hide the horrible wall of the septic tank filter bed!
This is what you will see when standing under the archway.
To the left is an oak-leaf hydrangea and a lilac…to the right, a choisya ternata, a perovskia and just behind that there is a ceanothus arboreus (cut-back after the freeze). Behind, on the screen the pink wisteria floribunda will be unfolded (that’s why it looks so strange…had to get it into the car)
I might move Apollo to centre stage against the wisteria…so, I’m thinking of a shortish flowering shrub with two taller ones either side…so that I can plant perennials in front.
Unless anyone has a better idea, I’m open to any suggestions!
It’s in full sun until evening…
If you are still under the archway and turn around, this is what you see on the right-hand side.
Again, I’d like to have two or three flowering shrubs (not enormous but reasonably big), as I’d like the very straight pathway up the side to ‘disappear’…
As it’s market day tomorrow and the GCs come to me, I’d appreciate any ideas…especially for that shady border…
Many heads are better than one! :))))
