An unkempt garden but one with a great basic structure. These photos show the extent of plant overcrowding. I put the Acers, seen in pots here, into the ground and built plant colour and choice around these in one quarter of the garden with Allium, Thalictrum and Sambucus v. Black Lace . Other plants left included a large Philadelphus, Bay and two Lilac. The paths in two adjacent circles were simply relaid yet made a fantastic difference.
