This year will be the second year of growing in my garden. Last year I grew lots of annuals and perennials from seed and added shrubs throughout the year.
This year I'm hoping that the perennials will grow stronger and I will rely less on the annuals to fill in gaps. The cosmos I grew from seed (direct sowing) were incredible and gave the garden lots of height and interest. The overall effect I want from my garden is a relaxed cottage garden feel.
This year I would like to add the following to my garden:
Dahlia 'Cafe au Lait'
Salvia 'Hot Lips'
Erysimum 'Bowles Mauve'
Echinops 'Blue Taplow'
Bellflower 'Blue Clips'
