You may remember that in an earlier post I commented on how we had gaps in our pebble gardens which were providing an opportunity to buy more plants.
I had already recently filled one gap with a tulbaghia. A few days ago we decided to carry out a garden centre crawl and came back with among other thinks some new gap fillers.
The small pebble bed was the one with most gaps but I decided that some of the new plants we a little too vigorous to be housed there. On the other hand a couple of plants in the larger pebble bed were in danger of being swamped.
These plants were lifted, and along with three of the new aquisitions were planted in the small pebble bed.
The two saxifrages in the small pebble bed have been impressive. I bought them in flower at the end of January and planted them out on 7 February as shown below.
They have flowered continuously since and only now are the flowers coming to an end.
As the plants grow the gaps should close up even more. The new plants that I expect to spread more were planted in the larger bed.
Now I am looking forward to seeing some new flowers.
