too busy to enjoy summer flowers?

We have been so busy with work in the month of June it's been hard to relax and enjoy our summer flowering border, although its not been particularly kind weather to sit outside. Lets hope for a better July and August.

Harriet has joined the team having just graduated from Greenwich University with a B.A (hons) degree in Garden Design. A big welcome to a much needed additional resource!

Greencube's garden is also moving on with second phase almost complete, retaining wall was built back in the winter months, levels sorted and kitchen garden ready to use and new turf down only last week. 

I've added Cosmos 'Purity' to fill any gaps in the border, an annual with a lovely fern like foliage.

We are leaving the purple and white phase in the border and entering the hotter colours, lets hope the weather hots up too. See the first Helenium in flower.

Our sandy free draining soil suits Anthemis E.C Buxton and Euphorbia wulfennii

Our new curvy wall (bug hotel) is settling in nicely with its new lawn, laid only last weekend.

Paul at Rock Unique cut this capping for us.
