Border planting - Front garden Colour and shape

We went back to maintain a border yesterday, that was planted 2 years ago.

This border has been creating conversations and admiring comments from neighbours, which, let's face it, is what you want for a front garden border really. - it's a bit of a change from the weedy patch left over by the builders which I found 2 summers ago.

The border is a peculier mix of clay and flint ( with lots of builders rubble thrown in for good measure) so the first winter it quickly became to sticky to work on, and the daffodils we wanted to add needed to be planted in pots and added in the spring. - Luckily all the bulbs made it through, and the Alliums have been a real summer feature of this border.

We mulched well after weeding today, which will hopefully keep the weeds down, as we're unlikely to be able to get on the border again until spring. - We're sorting out the back garden now, so i'll get to see future progress, and if the shrubs grow to full size and finally hide the Gas meters
