The Iris in the Summer Garden are in full flow now. Last year I scattered some Nigella seeds around them, and they should make quite a nice show - but not at the same time as the iris, as I'd hoped. Never mind, companion planting has now become successional planting!

You can just see the Iris peeping over this paper-like Cistus flower.


  1. Wow! What a fantastic garden:o) I stumbled upon your blog and I'm glad I did!

    Ì'll keep up with you:o)

    Kind Regards,

  2. Your Iris are making a nice display Martin! I only have one flower so far this year.

  3. I know what you mean Martin, companion planting usually turns out to be successional planting for me also. Still has great benefits though.
