The Katie holten designed Artist Garden project is coming on great..the official opening is this sat from 6-8pm with the Mayor Kevin Campbell doing the honours, the challenge of this project has been the shade (from the planting choice), the courtyard of the City Factory gets no direct sunlight, so the choice of plants have to have this factored in, a plant we have majored on is Ferns, we have a lovely selection planted in the garden, some Evergreen, some non-evergreen, so it'll probably August when the garden is at its best, as this is when all the Hostas will be up and in their glory too....
In the garden I think we have 10 different types of ferns, from small to medium to large growing types, as mentioned before some evergreen, some non-evergreen, these few pics are them just after we had them planted, and they arrived in this great condition. We selected Ferns which were tough and pretty and provided a range of colours and textures. We sourced the Ferns here from Gardening Express.
