After weeks of effort – mainly by others – we got round to planting up the four big steel planters (two at each end of Round Hill Crescent) to mark the gateway to Round Hill. Thought you might like to see them (two anyway). Apart from the two of us who ‘took charge’ at each end we had ten other adults turn up and five children. Volunteers have appeared at each end to water them regularly.
One planter at each end has a dwarf cordon apple tree, the other has a whitecurrant bush. Other plants are useable – rosemary (prostrate), sage (purple), fennel (bronze), tomatoes, plus red hot pokers, lavender and a yellow tall daisy (Coreopsis I think). Neighbours brought extra plants including trailing lobelia, perpetual spinach, cardoon (how big will that get), a big echium (more bigness – have a look at the link) and some daisy type plants, some yellow bedding plants and two white foxgloves.
