That is all looking very cottagey. I like that style of gardening. Mine are still mostly to come which is just as well because we have had torrential rain with flooded roads again. The sun has just come out so the flowers will too I expect and then they will be battered with the rain. I bought lots of plant supports but did not get them in on time to stop the poppies being flattened yesterday.

Looks great, also looks labour intensive to keep them all in there allotted spaces, don't know how you find time time play with alpines and support W.H. lol

SG-supports are a good idea.Mine are still in the shed.
B-not too bad.I mostly let them get on with it,taking out any that get too wide.Plenty of gaps though where I'm sure there should be something.
