Front Gardens are boring 2


Well I thought I would share my front garden now It is all planted up.
Initially it was just a boring patch of lawn that didnt look much. It has some roses close to the house which I shall move at the end of autumn, and last year I planted some ferns and other shade lovers under the cherry tree.

View from my bedroom window. It makes a change from the last view.

I’ve moved some cannas from the back to the front along with my Fatsia which didnt seem to be doing so well. Along with these were some Phormiums that I had split from a pot a few months ago and a couple of Cordylines.
I have also split up loads of different varieties of Primrose and re located them.

Also went to local nursery and picked up some perennials to add some colour.

Hopefully now you will agree that it’s not as boring as it used to be.

Just be careful when you move the roses you will find a big tap root on them when you expose the roots...try not to snap it.....and i like the shape youve created..Well done.
Best Wishes
