I really like the grass....I bet it looks nice when the wind blows (gently). That looks like bark mulch, is it? I'm considering an area with small stones/rocks but maybe bark would be a good choice.

We once had bark down in another house we lived in but I found the weeds got through (I think the membrane wasn't of good quality in all likelihood). How have you found the bark (if, indeed it is bark!)?

It's gorgeous Blue, I love the soft colours. Is the grass at the back with the fluffy seed heads the one I asked about the other day?

Whistonlass, I don't use a membrane under the bark mulch,I don't like them, besides I'm always moving plants around. I put down about a layer at least 5cms which will only suppress weed growth, I wont stop it, otherwise i would spend all my time in the garden just weeding!
Anne, If you mean the white fluffy headed grass in this pic, that one is Pennisetum villosum, the other one before that you mentioned was Pennisetum orientale 'Shogun' x

Beautiful! I love the colour of the heather . . . could I grow it on neutral/alkaline soil? All the shades look lovely together.

All the winter and spring heaths, Erica carnea, Erica x darleyensis, Erica erigena will grow in all soils, while you should also be able to grow in nautral soils cultivars of the summer flowering Erica vagans, Erica x williamsii, Erica manipuliflora, and Daboecia cantabrica. The heathers in flower in the photo are cultivars of Calluna vulgaris and Erica cinerea, which will only grow in acidic soils.

Good combination of colour. Don't forget the cut the heather when it's finished flowering or it will become woody.

I cut all my summer flowering heathers in spring, otherwise I loose the winter interest of the spent flowers Lindak. :)

Good Bluespruce. It's really cold today and the wind is really gusting strongly where we are. Is winter arriving early?

Grasses are good. They grow well in the soil and in pots.
