Enlarged bed - Freda's Garden

Enlarging Flower Beds in the Orchard

It’s be a wonderful year of openings. I’ve had 26 in total, including two photoshoots and 3 large garden openings!

Now my openings for the year have come to an end, I am beginning to plan some changes for the garden.  To start with I am enlarging two of the beds in the Orchard and making them a lot bigger.

I extended these two beds to maker a bigger impact in the orchard as I felt they were too narrow. These plants I have put in these areas are: Arum Lily, Nandina Domestica (Magical Sunrise), Heuchera (Midnight Ruffle), Cordyline, Weigela (Summer Red), Virburnum (Dawn), Virburnum (Gold) and Abelia (Edward Goucher)

I have finished now but will have to keep them well watered over the next few months. I am rather pleased with the results.

My plan now is to have a very long pergola built at the end of the orchard and to cover it with 5 large climbing plants. I’m really excited about this!!

Added a new bed to Orchard

It was bothering me for a while, the empty patch at the back of the Orchard, so earlier this month I decided it was time to add a bit of interest and colour to the area.

The area before:

After clearing the area and plotting out the bed, I chose the following plants:

  • Viburnum
  • Buddleja candy pink and sky blue
  • Lobelia
  • Achillea violet and pink
  • Penstemon red and violet
  • Sweet William
