Our lovely old beech tree started splitting last year and was deemed unsafe so it was removed. It has opened up a lovely view over the Great Ouse Valley. We may sow sanfoin seed in the spot in April to attract the bees.
Two leylandii were removed from the bottom of the drive last year and we are slowly cultivating the area. Although we removed the main trunks, the roots remain so gardening is tricky. However, we are persevering and have planted roses, alliums and moved lots of agapanthus. All will take time to establish but it is a beginning!
A new border has been created near the walnut tree at the edge of the main lawn. I am enjoying the opportunity to create a softly coloured pink, grey and white border which has the background of ornamental grasses in the Monet Borders behind.
