split lavender & just Joey
It has become increasingly obvious that the lavender in the West Garden needs replacing.
The bush split this year, showing its woody legs and leaving an unfixable gap in its middle.
I had bought a lovely nepeta at the Springmount Garden Festival exactly for that purpose. But then I thought I would leave the lavender until after it finished flowering. I ended up putting the nepeta somewhere else. I'm always doing that - buying a plant for a specific purpose but then getting seduced into planting it elsewhere. Does anyone else have that problem?
Anyway, I have started a 'July 09' album and also uploaded pictures of my carnivorous plants to the 'greenhouse' album.
