Our experimental garden is now in its third year with lots to fix but standing back and overall the atmosphere is coming together. Only two real issues so far this year: first one heavy rain shower in June that flattened all of the new growth on Salvias, Briza media and Allium sphaerocephalon – they didn’t recover. Second was too many Nicotiana ‘Lime Green’. It looks a bit gaudy but you know, I like a bit of ridiculousness in my life, so I have kept them in for this year anyway, using fewer next year. Onwards to late summer and autumn and new levels of OTTness.
