August 2015A garden that is finished, is dead - but the East Patio is planted. A quiet, green, transitional space from the house to the blue and white around the washing pergola. Three walls of spekboom hedge is the closest my garden gets to minimalism. The focal point, to replace the lime tree thru the glazed kitchen door, is a tall blue pot
|Tall cobalt blue pot with white and green leaves|
The Ungardener painted the garstigly green wall in mocha to match the house. Streptocarpus (hybrid purple) now I can use the table to display a 'flowering' pot in season.
|With Streptocarpus and Septemberbossie|
Moved 2 Septemberbossie Polygala myrtifolia (only one survivor) which originally stood outside the garden gate. They have been hacked back while the house was rented, and need nurturing back to green, and flowers.
Plectranthus madagascariensis (for the white and green leaves) to spekboom planter.
Senecio macroglossus climber, sun, ivy leaves and yellow daisies to spekboom planter.
June 2015Rotheca myricoides (Clerodendrum ugandense) Oxford and Cambridge (blooming in February) 3m shrub. Outside kitchen door.
December 2014Second 2 window boxes under garage window - spekboom hedgelet from bits off the bits. First 2 window boxes under kitchen window - spekboom hedgelet. Rooted spekboom cuttings in patio planter with 2 clumps (one left in 2017) of asparagus fern from this garden (Asparagus densiflorus Cwebe perhaps?) Trellis to block the view from house to house.
