By popular demand, the same mix as previous but in the autumn - you can still see the ammi as a lower layer, but now overtopped by cosmos

We’ve been having overcast drizzly dark days but in early december the hakonechloa in the garden is glowing. although much of the planting is mingled and mixed, it’s important to have these moments of massing and simplicity as a contrast to the complexity elsewhere, even if the space itself is quite small

Great news today - @jameshitchmough and i have the go ahead for a new full colour completely revised and rewritten edition of the dynamic landscape - we first wrote it 15 years ago and a lot has happened since then!

Very nice to see this update of my relocated 2011 chelsea flower show garden - thanks @sarahfletchergardens ・・・
watery landscapes. rbs rain garden @wwtslimbridge designed by nigel dunnett - the inspiration for a college project whilst studying @thecotswoldgardeningschool . i’ve posted some pics of it before - a wetland scheme using mesic plants that tolerate periods of flood and drought. what excites me is how that project continues, 2 years on, to inspire me to understand and work with the environment. it opened my eyes to what is around me (swipe) when i go on rambles in my local nature reserve. i can now identify and understand the plants that grow there and why they are so successful. that project also highlighted the beauty of senescence where seed heads provide beautiful structure and grasses mellow hues even in the bleak winter #wetland #gardendesign #plantsthatdiewell #autumncolour #wintergarden #seedheads #grasses #mesicplants #formandstructure #winterstructure #rightplantrightplace #umbellifer #deschampsia #alnus #phragmites #wwtslimbridge #raingarden #birdfriendly #wildlifegarden #conservation #publicspacedesign #naturalhabitat #technicaldrawing #handrendering #inkdrawing #handdrawn #naturereserve #portburywharf #waterylandscape #waterrecycling
