The Upper Borders are dry and sunny and often need our 'free' water. We are still experimenting with grasses, sedums and annuals.

An edging of coleus 'Little Gem' sets off the upper dry border. this has a weeping hose under the roots.

Various annuals - such as cosmas, grown from seed - are added among bedding dahlias that overwinter in the free draining light soil.

Other annuals. Amaranthus in various shades and Clary seem to love our light Upper Garden soil
