Cornwall, United Kingdom
Do you have any ideas for a feature plant(s) in the middle of the new garden I'm making? This area of the garden was originally cut out of the surrounding gorse as a firebreak so I can't grow anything shrubby. Strictly herbaceous only. The garden has ribbons of blue flowering plants to represent a stream flowing down the hillside, with hummocky plants representing "boulders". I wondered if the bed-to-be (surrounded by a ring of paving slabs) could "be" a pond, so suggestions of blue flowerers would be particularly welcome. Maybe with the odd marigold "goldfish".
By the way, the pit in the top right hand corner is where I've taken the soil out to build the Cornish hedge (double drystone wall). I intend to bury a large container in it to hold harvested rainwater.
