The blue plastic that had been protecting the garden from the local cat community was removed and I was ready to get planting.
My plan, a very loose one, was hardy annuals (mainly) in purple and orange.
The bean canes have been planted with Sweet Pea “Blue Velvet’ and Purple Cobaea scandens. They are surrounded by a mix of Lavender Munstead, Cerinthe major ‘Purpurascens’, Eschschoizia californica ‘Orange King’, Salvia Viridis and Calendula ‘Indian Prince’
I covered the plants with pea netting, to provide the necessary support as they grow, but also to protect them ‘hopefully’ from my furry neighbours!
I also like to give the local slugs and snails a celebratory beer, rude not to.
