Who said gardening wasn’t easy? Okay, maybe some parts aren’t that simple – grafting, propagation, weeding on cliffs, getting rid of slugs and innumerable other things but some aspects of gardens are unbelievably straightforward.
In this border we have sown a huge range of flowers species varying from sky blue cornflowers, to custard coloured daisies, candy pink campion, mallows, phacelia, corncockles and cosmos. It is a very simple way of filling a gap - maybe while you are waiting for either inspiration or time to do something more permanent.
The result will be a fantastic sight. There is another wave of flower to come as the summer continues.
