What's Looking Good in Greencube's Garden - June 2012

Our large sweeping perennial and grass border has done incredibly well this year, it's second summer and all the perennials have filled out. I cannot see any gaps due to the great selection of gap fillers ( a very important plant to tie borders together and to suppress the mundane task of weeding).

The soil is sandy but I have enriched with green compost and mushroom compost.

Here's a selection of my favourites taken throughout the month of June:

Nepeta 'Walkers Low' and Osteospermum jucundum, the bee's love the Nepeta


Saxifragra x urbium (London Pride)

Allium multibobosum nigrum

The Alliums are mixed with Salvia 'Caradonna'

The Eremerus and Verbena's will be next to follow

The Diascia 'Daydream' which we have used quite a bit in various gardens this year is filling the gaps on cue.

Sanguisorba menziesii is looking great with the Calamagrostis 'Karl Foerster' (ornamental grass)

Irises are also doing particularly well including 'Jane Phillips'

A new addition for this year is Verbascum 'Gainsborough'

Libertia grandiflora is doing well and is a late May to early June flower
