Finally a side garden

Standard

May 2014.
When moving into the new house – the back garden was always my priority.
It gets the most sun – I can see it from the house, and it’s where my bunnies live.
So this month I have been cracking on with the side garden.
This is how it looked in May – a few little bushes I had purchased and a lovely Sage plant picked out by the slug hunter.

I purchased 48 butterfly-friendly plants through a great deal with Gardener’s World (best magazine subscription I have ever had), and added a few lavenders and dahlia, and my pride and joy – the Celosia caracas.
So today; it looks a little more like this –

With particular emphasis on the Stock ‘Cinderella Mix’ (Matthiola incana) that my brother and his girlfriend gave to us when we moved in. They certainly look brilliant in the sun.
