Tiny flowers

Erodium Roseum

Sometimes a small flower can have a large impact; this tiny alpine is a fantastic ground cover and forms into hummocks (love that word), keeping the weeds down beautifully under larger shrubs. A friend has this on two long patches on the driveway and it gets run over regularly but still produces beautifully.

Millpond – painting heads gallery

A wonderful set of beds designed by Diane of Urban Eden Designs got painted in all sorts of animal patterns.

Animal Face Raised Beds

Raised Bed fun

One of the design features in the courtyard allotment needed to be a number of raised beds. Most of the area was tarmac and it was too expensive to dig it up. Diane from Urban Eden Designs came up with some beds that fitted in the best positions around the courtyard and had gorgeous animal faces on the end. We asked the children to vote as part of the design process and we

ended up with some fabulously individual beds.
