I've chosen mostly perennials and shrubs for the main border, adding some different textures with hosta white feather and a couple of ferns. I'll fill in the gaps with cosmos (being grown from my Mum's seeds), nicotiana nd penstemons. I went in search of penstemons and salvia hot lips at the weekend but could only find one penstemon. Hot Lips arrives later in June I was told.
|Clematis Dr Ruppel|

|L to R: part of the large border: lupin, honeysuckle Serotina, fuchsia, viburnum, hosta White Feather|
|The cherry tree (needs re-siting in the autumn, too close to the wall)|
