As If by Magic A Heuchera Appeared

Things are coming on nicely over at the garage garden.  I’ve added dahlias, coreopsis, morning glory, sweet peas and something else that I lost the label for, all generously donated by the wonderful Plotts.  (They’ve recently risked life and limb, or at least braved standing in London traffic, to start their own guerrilla garden.)

I’ve also planted some white lobelia left over from a recent present purchase that I thought would look nice tumbling over the edge of the garden, and a spare bronze fennel which is having a great big sulk about being moved.

A lovely mystery gardener has planted a heuchera – I’m guessing “Coral Bells” from the striking colour of the flowers.  Thank you! There’s another plant too, which I think is a recent addition but I can’t identify.

There are a gazillion seedlings springing up – mostly weeds, I think, but I recognise a few of the annual poppies and have left them in place.

It’s so nice to look back at the picture of what the garden was like before we started a year ago, and to look at it now. I am really proud of what we’ve created, and I am so grateful to all my co-gardeners who have been by and planted, weeded, and watered, and to all the passers-by who have offered encouragement. You are all blooming marvellous!

Here’s a bumper crop of pics, some of them taken on my proper Canon DSLR, so if you look at the original there’s lots of detail in the zoom view.

  4. Thank you! I’ve had lots of help from the mystery gardeners of Andover, as well as good friends *waves* and my partner. I think it’s a successful collaboration.
