The Garden in July

Its the middle of a heatwave at the moment, and overall the garden does seem to enjoy the warmer weather, although the extra watering takes sooooo much longer.



Regardless the garden is starting to fill out - too much so in some places where those extra plants squeezed into a gap in spring didn't really have a gap to squeeze into! 


The Jungle area is  mass of ferns, with the tree ferns once again taking centre stage.






















We are really pleased with the way the garden is looking this year, everything is looking so green and lush, not bad for an urban back garden!

  1. Your jungle is magnificent. Hard to believe it's an urban garden. It looks like it would be easy to get lost there. I've been guilty of trying to fit plants into spaces that look fine in early spring, but by summer are obviously much too tight.

    1. Thanks Alison! We do the same, put in plants in gaps in the spring but by summer have to hack back.

  2. It looks SO good! I especially love the top shot. I can't imagine dragging hoses around your pathways, what a job.

    1. Thanks Loree,

      That top photo echos one you took when you visited, that corner with the bench was totally lost in the 2013 fire, so for it too look like that just two years later is rather pleasing.

      Yes dragging hoses round is tricky :)

  3. You're absolutely right -- it's looking great! If it were my garden looking so perfect, that means that we'd get a hailstorm or something soon to take things back a notch. :\ Hoping your heatwave breaks soon!
