Planted the wrong way?

My daughter’s piano teacher couldn’t make the lesson today, so feeling shattered after coffee-induced insomnia last night, I decided to knock a trip to the allotment this evening on the head. Instead, I moved my festuca glauca ‘Elijiah blue’ from the patio to the garden.


Thing is, it towers above the dianthus next to it, so I can no longer see the latter from the patio. Oh well, having recently learned that the grass only has a life of about three years, it might not be there for very long. Besides, on my learning curve I am sure there will be lots of opportunities for digging up and starting again 😉

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    Anything that climbs or rambles is a winner with me ….as Beth Chatto said it’s gardening in the sky.
