How does your garden grow?

With sunshine, rain, some Seasol ....and about nine months since planting:

The Little Gems I planted as a border were a bit straggly and skinny after spending way too long in their pots. So I hacked at them mercilessly and they were sprouting new leaves all over ....which the freak hailstorm a couple of weeks ago shredded. :(

But they're bouncing back. They should make a nice bushy hedge given a little time.

I get impatient at times and think there hasn't been much growth. So it's good to take photos and do a comparison now and then and see that things really are taking off nicely.

Now I can't wait to turn this into a tranquil oasis:

Your garden is looking great!! I plan to do the before pictures with ours, just to remind myself where it's come from. I can't wait to see what you do with the back - that is our blank canvas at the moment..
