South Garden – Conservatory
I used to grow lots of tender things in here, just because I could. Then I realised that just as borders full of random plantings are a bit of an eyesore and not much pleasure to live with, so is a conservatory with random plantings. Then we got pests I couldn’t get rid of, even with expensive predators.
So now I have dramatic plants, repeated, have painted the walls black to show them off. Some are hardy, so I can put them outside if I want to swop things around and add seasonal plants. Fun. Better. And controls the pests. (I didn’t say kills them…)
