Now that my garden renovations are in full swing, I have become very aware of two things - the amount of money I’m spending on plants and the amount of water I’m using. Let’s start with money.


I have concentrated, throughout spring, on creating new borders at the front of the house. A lot of new perennials were purchased but I quickly came to realise that I don’t have the budget to match my grand ideas. So, when the undergrowth beneath the hedge was cleared and the idea to extend my new border all the way to the hedge materialised, a new mindset was quickly needed!


First, a few visits to friends - they assumed for a catch-up and coffee but for me - a scouting mission. I managed to acquire two varieties of Iris and a huge batch of Lady’s Mantle that will work as a great filler, that can be gradually replaced over the years with more ‘special’ finds. The cost of these plants? A donation of my surplus Hosta’s and the promise of peony clumps when they finish flowering. Kind neighbours have shared spare plants too in exchange for potatoes from my veg plot. Over the coming weeks, my border is set to double in size, without doubling in price.


My new mindset has also led to a bit of advance planning for the back garden too!

I currently have over 20 Stipa Grasses grown from a packet of £1.99 seeds that will be ‘for sale’ size by next summer – a saving of £160. Next, with more attention to the roots than the foliage, I’ve bought a small amount of very pot- bound plants. Thanks to a spade and a bread knife, I have split them into smaller clumps and potted them up. At present my garden could pass for a small garden nursery but by next summer, I’ll have all the plants I need for next year’s new borders.


Plants that can easily be split after flowering:


• Use a spade to split clumps of peonies in half. To ensure the new division flowers well next year, move them as soon as they have finished flowering and plant the new crown high. They are unlikely to flower if planted too deep.


HOSTA


• Divide Hosta clumps with a spade anytime of the year.


• If your Astrantia is flowering but you’d still like to split a clump up soon, remove all the flowers. This will ensure that energy is diverted to make new roots and leaves, rather than seeds.


ASTRANTIA


So, that’s the first problem solved! As for my second problem of watering? We’ll have to do this again next month..!
