I have done a video of my garden for anyone who would like a look. I haven’t got a clue how to put a link on here (Gary @scaryskates can you help?) It’s on You Tube under Jane Allen My Garden. Mission accomplished at last Rula @sabbanrula I now nominate Jason @Jasonsparkes1

What a wonderful garden Jane, like I knew it would be 💚😘 thank you for indulging me dear 🥰 You have so many different flowers and I loved your plan for the begonias 😄 I see what you meant about it 😁 The veggies look great and promising and the clematis is amazing with these big blooms on the trellis 😍 loved the variation of colours 🌈 #gtaggersvideotour

I think so, but you have to check the height of the aquilegias as they can vary. I particularly like Green Apples for its height (even though they look white) I want to add Black Barlow to this mix as I think it will go perfectly 👌 @solly1961
