New planting

The recent addition of French doors at genus HQ has opened up a whole new vista for us to observe while eating our breakfast.  Unfortunately the planting in this area is excessively tall and reduces our ability to see across the garden towards the pond.

We’ve now relocated most of the plants and have started to introduce others of a lesser stature into the area.  Out came helenium, rudbeckia, and hemerocallis and in has gone heuchera, paeony, a small kniphofia, and a lovely yellow hellebore.

Rather than spend money on a boot load of plants we decided to split up or move what we already had in the garden.  It’s early days and we have more to plant but with the new doors and new planting we think we’re going to take rather a long time to eat our breakfast.
