October and November is a good time to tidy, weed and put the garden to bed.

For the past two months, I’ve been working on a garden in Bath. I thought you might like to see how good some mulch is. It gives good ground cover and helps reduce weeds. I planted some tulips here for the spring. I’ve also started a lavender and hollyhock theme in the adjacent bed with plants grown in my own garden. Hollyhocks are biennial so this garden may need some foxgloves to add to the cottage garden theme. I’ll return in March to add some more colour.

This would look even better with a sleeper, especially as it is a sloping bed on a hill. We’ll return in the spring to see whether a hard landscaper has been able to support my soft landscaping.
