The Garden Designer’s Garden – February Update

ALDA in Action

As promised in last month’s blog, here are some photos of my new back garden patio, courtyard, mini formal lawn and veggie “coffins”.

In terms of the veggie “coffins”, I am contemplating buying or making some small obelisks – both to continue the formal theme and to use as support structures.

And of course, we are contemplating what to grow in them. Like most of our clients, we don’t have endless amounts of time, so will be keeping things simple this year. But I am hoping to grow a few vegetables which I cannot always find in the shops such as Treviso radicchio, and also a few courgettes – for their flowers as I am a keen cook (again when time permits)!  Runner beans are a must, although I think I might experiment with some dwarf forms in my windy site.  And a few salad leaves.  And……

Then, of course, there is all the planting in the borders between the new section of garden and the main lawn (existing).  Plans are in progress – and the planning and planting is something to be savoured and enjoyed over the coming spring and summer months.

Will keep you updated.

Happy gardening.
