Gloucester House 2011

Whilst half the team worked on the overgrown area by the tennis courts, Simon, Ali and Joe spent the day cutting back the perennials and grasses that had been left over the winter.
The Gloucester House border is left untouched to provide homes and food for the wildlife as well as for their architectural stems and heads. These were particularly stunning during the numerous frosts seen in Oxfordshire over the last few months, ice crystals clinging to them and sparkling in what little sun we had.

Once cut back, weeded and the remaining autumn leaf fall removed, Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Little Spire' was planted in the gravel to add more structure and colour for this summer's display.
