Weekend Garden Makeover


The Weather over the weekend was perfect in Orange....
I am officially on School Holidays for 2 weeks and as with all
 holidays I have set myself far too many goals and
may be lucky to achieve only a few of them.....
With that said I have one of them ticked off the list...
My side garden bed makeover....
Here are some before pictures, I have removed everything except
 the hot water system and the Crepe Myrtle tree...
I already had a foam box full of Daffodil Bulbs that I had dug out
of the front yard in a previous makeover and 5 Rose Bushes...
I then took a trip to Bell River Nursery and came home
 with 18 English Box Hedge plants....
Had some Mini Pine Bark delivered.....
I planted the Roses across the back of the bed and spaced out my
 hedges(this involved a tape measure so it's almost like quilting)
Then it was plant plant plant and mulch mulch mulch....
I know it is not the time to be planting bulbs but they
 haven't flowered yet so I am hoping they will be happy.....
They have survived on the verandah steps in a white foam
 box for about 15 months with little TLC so
I hope they will be happier in the ground....
I will now have to be patient and wait a few years to achieve
 the look I am wanting but I think you will get the idea.....
Rose bushes across the back bordered with a nice formal hedge
 and daffodils popping up in the centre for seasonal colour......
I hope you all had a lovely weekend.....
Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my journey of
 making my little patch of the world my home....
 
PS I hope to have some progress to show you
 this week in my Sewing Studio....
All going well walls and ceiling will be lined...
Yay! Happy Days!
 
Until next time, Happy Stitching
 
Kate

Your planting looks great Kate. Maybe your carpenter can put together a cover for the hws for some garden art to go on? Sharyn:)

Congrats on all that hard work. It must be good to tick a project off your list. Even if those bulbs don't flower this year, they will next year (and they will multiply) so I wouldn't worry. Feed them after they have flowered, or as they die off - that's when they form next year's flowers.

That will be gorgeous whne its grown a bit!
I can imagine my husbands reaction if I suggested using any form of measurement when planting.

You must feel great with the garden ticked off the list! Feed your bulbs well with Seasol as the leaves die down!
