Having decided that the out door living area needed some tender loving care, I took my self off to Langlands to buy lavender. I later returned £55 lighter, how does that happen?!
Landlands is a large garden centre at Shiptonthorpe about 6 miles to the south east of Pocklington on the A1078 Hull Road. It has lots of gorgeous things to buy, along with a lovely cafe.
Since the next door hedge took a severe haircut, I felt the seating area on the patio had lost a little privacy, so I installed some bamboo screening along one side. I’m loving the effect, it makes it more of a sun trap than it already was.
I’m also loving the ladybugs and the bumble bee climbing up the screen.
The next step was to brighten up the old dolly tub in the corner that was hosting a fine selection of weeds.
The tub has been drilled for water drainage and I’ve planted it with English Lavender and Clematis. I’m hoping the Clematis will grow up the trellis and also the other direction to spill over the railings.
Next I installed the BBQ stand that Gavin made. Precision engineering in stainless steel at its best!
Finally I snapped a couple of pictures of the garden for the website, as I’d had some feedback from a guest that they hadn’t realised there was a garden.
