Planting in summer may well be more hard work than at other times of the year, but providing it’s done properly, you should find you’ve set your plants up for life. Beth and her husband, Andrew, embraced the conditions that were given to them here in Essex and made the decision to work with what they had, rather than trying to fight against it.
The Gardens in spring
We love herbs! Not only do they look pretty in containers and borders, attract bees and butterflies, but they also smell and taste delicious
They’re not particularly fashionable I suppose, but if there’s one reliable perennial you should have for your garden it’s got to be the day lily...but it is a travesty to eat them...
For a lot of people a constantly damp or boggy soil is potentially a problem, but that needn’t be the case. There are many plants that will survive and indeed thrive in such conditions. I feel these plants should be considered for your own garden if you have a wet or damp soil.
