Rock garden

Today I finished the rock garden which I posted about starting here.  Improvements to this garden didn't cost a thing.  The rocks were left over from another project and all the plants were either propagated, transplanted or found in other parts of the garden where they had self sewn.  I had great satisfaction completing this project as the site before was very sloped and water run off was a problem.  The soil is heavy clay and in winter little sunshine reaches this spot.  I suspect some of the plants won't do as well as others so there is more than a little experimentation going on here.

The new plants in this garden are Tanacetum Parthenium (Feverfew), Rose Campion, Digitalas (Foxglove), Plectranthus argentatus, Cuphea (Rob's Mauve), Salvia, Stachys Byazantina (Lambs Ear) and succulents.  I'm looking forward to seeing how this garden evolves come Spring/Summer.

Have a fabulous week everyone,

  1. What a great job you have done. It'll be lovely watching the plants grow.

  2. Looks like you have made a little piece of wilderness there. It is so satisfying working with what you have. It will be a joy to watch it grow. Cherrie

  3. It'll be interesting to watch it mature, a beautiful little corner :) xx

  4. It's looking good, well done. You'll have to blog it again in the future sometime when things have grown and developed.
