There are always areas of our garden which annoy us and the side of our deck always annoyed me. It was a bit colourless and unfinished looking so finally, I’ve taken it in hand!
Sometimes we overthink things but this problem area was simply solved with planting in some pretty, dwarf Campanula Blue with their loose, bell-shaped flowers, bought at £2 a plant from Morrisons.
I surrounded them with some gravel to keep the grass at bay in order to give them a chance to establish this year. With any luck, by next Summer each plant should reach around 25cm in width and I set them at 30cm apart so that they will grow to form an almost continuous, blue border.
As they will not grow much taller than 15-20cm, it solves the other problem of needing to get the pink wheelbarrow through the space.
Campanula Blue is a hardy perennial so by next Summer, I’ll hopefully be showing you a simply-solved, beautifully blooming, garden project which cost only £10!
