Sandhurst Garden Design


What a mixed bag of weather we have had over the last month or so. First the rain that never seemed to stop then a week of freezing temperatures to contend with.

In the garden there is evidence of energy just below soil level as shoots of daffodils, crocus and iris are appearing in all my garden borders. It will not be long now until they burst into colour to lift our spirits and encourage us to dream about our plans for the gardening year ahead.

In December we revamped one of the borders at the back of our house. Several of the plants had become too big for the space so we relocated them to other parts of the garden. I want to inject more structure, colour and variety into this border which is in full sun all day. 

I have already added my structure in the form of evergreen euonymus ‘Green Spire’ balls, which at the moment are providing interest and ‘green’ to the space, and planted my ‘go-to’ perennial for a sunny border Salvia Caradonna which will do very well in this position giving me months of colour, as well as being a great source of nectar for insects.

I still need to add more plants to give this border all year interest and I shall look forward to a shopping trip to the garden centre to source these in a few months’ time.

I am pleased to say that Sandhurst Garden Design is still busy with new projects and projects that have come over from last year. We have new garden designs ready to start building if the weather plays ball, and others on the drawing board I am designing for clients. 

If you are contemplating a new garden design for 2024 and would like my help, then give me a call or or visit my website where you can see details of recent projects and read testimonials from clients we have built gardens for. 

Next month I will have some exciting news to share with you, so do not forget to pick up your copy of the Visitor Magazine to read all about it.

Until next time
