Time for another update on the garden 🙂 This is how the top of the border is looking. The erysimum add a nice drop of colour!
The meadow sword is getting taller, especially around the bird bath! I love watching it fill in.
As you might remember from my garden plans post, my oval flower bed was overrun with grass (it used to be lawn) and I needed to get weeding.
Well I’ve removed as much grass, and other weeds, as I can without damaging my flowers and shoots. Now I’ve decided to sheet mulch carefully around existing plants to kill off the rest and prevent it from returning.
I’m just using a layer of newspapers with wood chip on top. I’ve got about half done so far, as I started on the shadier side as it had less plants to go around, and it did have the most grass.
This is our outlook right now. The silver birch are finally starting to fill in 😀
How is your garden growing?
