My courtyard garden needed a spruce up.
Jeyes fluid can clear up patio slabs quickly.
A more extensive clean will need a jet cleaner.
During the winter we installed a new fence.
Ground Elder now flourishes.
Pots had become overgrown.
One clear out produced an ants nest.
I replanted one pot with plants I had bought on a visit with Lincs Cottage Garden Society.
Elswhere Necotiana mixed with Antirrhinums looked good.
I like to use up plants I have grown myself.
My list included Monarda, Lychnis,Geranium and Astilbe .
It is a useful practice to stand back and take a critical look at you planting from time to time.
Gardening and plant design is an ongoing process.
