I've started the tidying up etc. in the Golden Border...

So far so good! :) Hedge needed a good cutting back, some shrubs needed to be spaced out a bit, new things added (although not in this area) and some things removed. I removed two Tree Heaths which were very woody at their bases and have added three yellow-stemmed cornus, another Choisya and a mound-forming Conifer. I'm also removing two tree lupins which grew to about twice their 'advertised' height, but hardly flowered.

I hope I get a flower on my Laburnum this year. That's it in the centre looking drab at the moment.

The joys of gardening Karen, always looking to improve. I also started a tidy up last week and ended up overdoing it. Now been told by the physio to take it easy. (sigh!)
