Is the circular border new since your summer open day? The variegated Cornus will make a pleasing combo with the dark foliage.

Siris we had a standard rose in the middle surrounded by Osteos, decided to add the standard rose to the rose border.......
Thanks Karen, if we can keep the squirrels away from the tulips it should be fine!! at least with a small bed you can chop and change the planting.....
Wildrose thank you, we have given the grass border a facelift! and thanks Fran, will keep you posted.
