Introducing the Jewel Bed
For sometime now I have wanted to make a new flowerbed called the Jewel Bed - with the idea that the colours will be purple, yellow and orange. I had some flowers buried in my other two beds that needed space to breathe and I visited a couple of garden centres to see if any bargains were to be had. It's early days and the bed will doubtless expand but at present I love the cuteness of my new bed:)
So what's in it?
Left to right
Salvia (rescued from the Cool Bed), Rudbekia (rescued from the Hot Bed), Verbena (B & Q), Orange Dahlia (£3 - local garden centre)
Chrysanthemum (B & Q - 3 for £5), Yellow Dahlia (rescued from the Hot Bed), Heuchra (rescued from the Cool Bed), Coreopsis (B & Q)
Chrsanths - (from B & Q) and pansies from local garden centre)
I'd quite like an Ice Bed now - similar size - but all white and silver!
|Rose - from my sons on Mother's Day, Geraniums £1, Penstemons - cuttings.|
|Jasmine - £10 local garden centre, Bourgonville £10 at same garden centre, Geraniums £1 - same garden centre, Sweet Peas from seed, Anenomes (in the pot with the cosmos and Penstemon) 60p from Poundstretcher.|
Now I just have to remember to take cuttings and bring in the Bourgonville during the winter.
