Filling the First Raised Bed

I was really keen to start planting so it felt like I was getting somewhere, so I decided to start with the little separate section of raised bed. As it’s shady right next to the fence I decided to go for a tropical theme with some of the ferns and red flowered plants.

To plan it out, I chalked the outline and swapped plants in and out until I was happy.

Then I filled in the raised bed with soil (sourced via Facebook).

And finally, the first plants are in!

The plants are crocosmia, ferns, heuchera, hosta, and some of the bargain red primroses (now looking much healthier).
