Amateur Gardening - - Your Letters - M. Collins, Feltham, Greater Lon­don

I DO be­lieve the best ideas can be gleaned from other peo­ple’s gar­dens. When vis­it­ing an open gar­den last week, the owner had grouped pots of grasses and se­dums on a low wall so they could be seen more eas­ily.

Back home, I did the same us­ing con­tain­ers of plants that I hadn’t got round to plant­ing. A ‘Ham­lyn’ grass, a Ja­panese maple and suc­cu­lents were placed on a pa­tio ta­ble so I could see them from my kitchen win­dow.

Added to this scene were my dou­ble ‘Waterlily’ colchicums that rep­re­sented ex­cel­lent value for money at £5 for three bulbs and have con­tin­ued to flower for weeks. This lit­tle dis­play re­ally lit up my day!
