Large Raised Bed in Winter Silver Greys
Monday, 09 Jan 12 Cloudy 8°C / 46°F
The mild Winter, thus far, has meant that the large raised bed (there are two) is looking quite full and I’m surprised how ell it has stood up to the continuing gales.
In the main photo Stipa Tenuissima sways in the wind. A cutting of Helicrysum ‘Ruby Cluster’ grows directly below and to it’s right a trailing Lobelia annual that was cut back in late Summer, flowered a 2nd time in late Autumn and has survived Winter so far. Beside that is a Santolina that has been mostly hard pruned except for the one branch left at the front for Winter interest and cover. The green below the raised bed is a Campanula which was flowering over Christmas – a sign of how mild it’s been.
