hosta feature?


Im trying to make a small hosta area at the back of the garden but i would like to make it neater and more of a feature ~ i have tried to do this by adding rustic slate ~ i can buy these a few at a time which is helpful; but i think it wants more than this ~ any suggestions?

This is already delightful. I think if I had to change it I would go for less but much bigger pieces of yellowy stone and bury 2/3rds of them so they look as if they have always been there. Then I would cover the soil with bark chippings the lighter coloured one would echo the fence/stone and sit back and wait.Ps dont forget to add some woodland bulbs?

Especially bluebells, don`t make it too neat,Drc is right it looks so natural already......

thank you! yes bluebells would look lovely, tempted by snowdrops and very fond of wood anemones but cant find any ~ white looks good in this garden ~ i think it brightens it up
