The May garden

Here's my May garden....I love it - everything has burst and I'm about to indulge in some chopping back to give me a longer summer (and no staking).

The main difference this year is that there are no annuals - I don't have room, and I'm thankful for that, because I've been busy finishing my new book and filming for Love Your Garden which starts very soon....(I shall be hiding behind the sofa...see you there).

The geraniums are amazing...not 'Johnson's Blue', but 'Orion' - they are totally rocking my world, together with the lychnis and my four vast verbascums (one is in total shade and it makes not a jot of difference).  You'll notice that there's a slight problem with the crambe (that cloud of honey scented white)....there are actually supposed to be three, but only one has flowered (I think the chilly winter got the other two, which are very much there but not doing their THING, so to speak.

Here's everything from start to now:
