Gardening Gang 4th June 2017

This was our big planting day in the back garden, building on the earlier work tidying the area and pruning back some of the overgrowth.

Here’s what we planted:

Grasses
2 x Calamagrostis Acutiflora Karl Foerster (Grass)
1 x Festuca Glauca Eijah Blue (Grass)

Salvias
2 x Salvia (Nemorosa) Amethyst
3 x Salvia (Nemorosa) Caradonna
1 x Salvia (Nemorosa) Sylvestris Schnee

Herbacious Perennials & other
1 x Sanguisorba Tenuifolia Alba
2 x Geum Totally Tangerine
1 x Actaea Simplex Atropurpurea Brunette
1 x Cirsium Rivulare Trevor’s Blue Wonder (cerise!)
2 x Sedum Spectabile (Indian Chief)

Lavenders & Santolinas
2 x Lavandula Hidcote
2 x Lavandula English
2 x Lavender Munstead
1 x Lavender Dutch
2 x Santolina Rosmarinifolia Lemon Fizz
1 x Santolina Chamaecypariss

Alpines
2 x Bergeranthus Glenensis
3 x Erigeron Karvinskianus
1 x Sisyrinchium Californian
1 x Anemone Magellanica

Herbs
2 x chives
3 x thyme – creeping, white flowering
3 x thyme – lemon, variegated
1 x bronze fennel

Bedding / tender perennial – not in our strategy but we couldn’t resist it and maybe it will survive…
3 x Nemesia Wisley Vanilla

All the plants are quite small (budget constraints!). However, most of the plants came from RHS Wisley and so are good quality. We planted them in holes with compost and a good watering in and we’ll keep an eye on them so they should grow on strongly now they’re in the ground.
