Summer Out, Winter In

Summer 2012
It's that time of year again when the planting in the corner border is changed, for the May planting see blog entry 30th May 2012 'All Change In The Corner' .

The theme this year was 'edible', not always literally as in sweet peas and ornamental bananas, but close enough! The vegetables that were edible, runner beans, courgette, sweetcorn, carrots, beetroot, chard and lettuce have all added to a wonderful display supported by the not so edible, time though to rip it all out. 

Once cleared, and any debris removed, the area was levelled in preparation for the new planting for the winter display.

For this years display we have chosen box balls to add structure, with cornus and their colourful winter stems planted towards the middle and back amongst the box.

The under planting, to add colour in May, will be provided by the wallflowers we have grown from seed  'Sunset Purple' and 'Sunset Primrose' .
