Just submitted: My latest assignment for the Gardening With Grasses course I am completing with ornamental grasses expert Michael King.
The brief here was for broadly evergreen planting for a series of troughs to sit beneath a window and provide year round interest in this front garden.
This was achieved using a combination of Fern, Pittasporum, Helleborus and the endearingly heart-shaped foliage of Epimedium. A smattering of Gaura and Anemone is included to punctuate the leafy line-up with some low key but luminous blossom occasionally throughout the year.
This bench belonged to a client's Mum and had sentimental value. The task: to restore its former loveliness.
A rock garden in a shaded corner is a slightly tricky prospect. We used gorgeous red-purple Ajuga repens and bright Heucheras for ground cover here teamed with late flowering and cascading Tiarella cordifolia to beautiful effect.
