Most gardeners, novice or experienced, know how easy it is to create a colourful garden in May and June: early flowering perennials such as columbines, cornflowers and lupins are looking at their best, whilst the striking purple of the alliums has pushed its way through to create bold splashes of colour in the border. So the skilled part is how to create an impression all year round.
July is one of the busiest months in the garden and it is all too easy to forget to enjoy the fruits of your labour. Try to keep on top of jobs but also don’t forget to make the time to sit and just smell the roses!!
