'The New Parterre' - An Update!

Back in May 2016 I wrote this helpful post on creating your own parterre. It features the raised bed design I created for my very own garden and replaced a rather soggy lawn!

And here is the parterre in early July. All the plants are blooming and the obelisks are virtually covered:

With regular feeding and watering, the raised beds, and the dahlia Rip City, were the stars of the show at my NGS Garden Open Day. Watch the video coverage here.

As you can see in the photo below, even in October, the parterre was still in full bloom, with the wonderful deep orange Tithonias proving to be the perfect foil for the purple dahlias.
