Plant­ing a minia­ture gar­den

Bright spring weather tempts Weronika into the gar­den where she de­cides to plant a minia­ture gar­den in her wheel­bar­row

Landscape (UK) - - Contents -

plant­ing up her small wheel­bar­row with suc­cu­lents such as sem­per­vivums lets Weronika cre­ate a minia­ture gar­den to tend through the sum­mer. To al­low for drainage, holes are drilled in the base by an adult. Once the bar­row is planted up, plac­ing it in a sunny po­si­tion, pro­tected from rain, will help avoid wa­ter­log­ging. Sem­per­vivums have strong sil­hou­ettes and colour that show up well against a top­ping of grit mulch. Shells she has col­lected from sea­side hol­i­days add a fi­nal dec­o­ra­tive touch.
