Convert A Dull Spot Into A Dream Place


Need to get rid of a dull wall or boring area of your yard? Why don't you try this? Here, the showy Clematis 'Perle d'Azur' becomes an amazing backdrop with its profuse sky blue blossoms, hugging and hiding an old brick wall. The addition of a wooden bench, framed by two stone classic urns, provides an elegant focal point and adds a sense of destination. All these elements contribute to transform what would be a dull area into a spectacular spot and stir envy in the heart of most gardeners! Grow a few fragrant roses nearby and you will get a wonderful area in which to sit and enjoy the rich fragrances exuded by your own garden!

This eye catching scene belongs to the fabulous Rose Garden of Sissinghurst Castle (www.nationaltrust.org.uk), where roses are interplanted with irises, alliums, peonies and Japanese anemones.
