plants, bulb planting and plant moodboard

Another busy week which started with a delivery of 360 plants to set out ready for the landscapers to plant in a garden in Sevenoaks.

800 bulbs planted in the rain in a garden in Chislehurst that greencube designed last year, there will be a fantastic show next spring, looking forward to returning to see the display and take some more photos.

We have also returned to a garden in Shenfield which Greencube designed back in the spring which is near to completion and put the proposal of planting ideas together. We are going to plant this garden in November. Three very large planters creating division and zones, each of which are 4 metres plus in length, we have used Brazilian slate and Millboard Decking, a huge contrast from its original layout (tiny terrace and slope to boundary fence) and a great social space, utilising the topography to its maximum advantage. I will return next summer to get some photos for the website as it will look great when the plants have settled in and in full flower.

I also visited a new client in Otford with a very interesting brief and an exciting project for a small garden attached to a 300 year old cottage.

I organised a van load of plants to a garden in Poole in Dorset, together with complete instructions, planting plan, plant moodboard and on the end of the telephone if any queries, it all went well and client has promised to send photos next spring and summer.

Here's the moodboard of plant ideas for our Shenfield garden, we always put these together for our clients, they then understand the colours, textures and shapes that we are proposing. It helps them with identification also (once garden planted) which is great, knowledge is a wonderful thing!
