Re: How does your garden grow?

The wilderness takes over very quickly. I have my grass strimmed twice a year but the man who does it is booked to the end of July (and hasn't given me a date at all), I have grass and cowparsley over head height.

Re: How does your garden grow?

Like LL I have triffids. There is a tall hypericum that grow to meet the hydrangea on the other side of the path between front and back door.
