Seasonal colour

21 Chestnut Road, A garden for all seasons.

In my spare time when I am not gardening, golfing or entertaining grandchildren, I like to paint. Oh, by the way housework comes along way down the list! So, it is probably from this that my eye for colour has lead me to create this garden. Colour usually helps me to decide which plants to use first, before the impulse to 'must have that plant' takes over.

The key has been to, know your soil conditions, and plant the right plant in the right place. Whilst there have been a few casualties, the overall effect is still very pleasing.

There may not be orange in the front garden, but here it is, in high summer this border sings out and sizzles.

Once again colour combinations are so important. I find this very pleasing to the eye, and a total contrast to opposite.
