seeingreen's Road screening garden

Garden Type: Secret | Sun: Partial Sun | Soil: Combination | Established: 2005 | Organic

The road I live on was a quiet country road until the motorway was built – now its a rat run and can be quite busy, so am always looking for ways to screen out the sight and sound of vehicles.

seeingreen's Road screening garden is an outdoor organic garden located in Thame , United Kingdom and currently contains 25 plants.

This is a Secret garden that is known to be in USDA Hardiness Zone 8b. It has mainly Combination soil and receives Partial Sun light.

    Sounds like a great selection of plants the screening, a nice mix of colour, foliage, flowers and berries throughout the year I imagine.
