in the left hand house the tree is no longer there


Sea holly? Little yellow poppies? Grasses?
How about Jarman's Dungeness garden for inspiration?

What fantastic inspiration ! Thankyou thanks


Take a look on the RHS website for ideas and you can also use their plant selector and select various themes.

We're doing something similar on a South facing exposed area of our garden
