lavender, leeks and white sprouting broccoli

The lavender at the end of the rose bed had become very woody and overgrown. Time to dig it out. Which was surprisingly easy. And it gives the adjacent roses more light and space. So now I have the luxury of this fertile space and the question of what to plant there… more lavender? nepeta (will all the cats of the neighbourhood come and snooze in it?) or annuals perhaps – ammi majus, cosmos, zinnias? hmmmm


Lavender before                                               …. and after

Then picked white sprouting broccoli and leeks for supper.
