Wide border in April

Plants are beginning to catch up after their slow start.

Looks lovely Barbara, you've got lots crammed in there,know what you mean things seem to grow overnight at the moment, a few things here have died in the cold, but also a few surprises that have survived, especially pleased my lobelia tupa is poking through thought I'd have lost that, love this time of year :-)

looks fabulous, whats the white plant near the centre with the large flowers! :^)

Thanks - that plant is Skimmia 'Kew Green'.

Yes, Simbad, I've lost plants too - but the rest are coming on much more quickly than in other years. It's amazing, really - the Irises in the back garden have started to flower!

Glad to hear that your lobelia is safe and sound.

Great to see it all developing again.

It's changed from last year! I took out lots of the Lysimachia ciliata - and moved some clumps of phlox further back - and of course, I'm still removing Jap. Anemones to make room for different plants. They are still popping up, though! :-((

Bet the Lysimachia will be back too! It's already looking pretty.

I did leave some, Wagger, because I like the dark leaves. I'm sure it will return - I'll have to make sure it's where 'I' want it to be, though! ;-/
