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