It doesn't look like much, but planting these two was a LOT of work.
First pic shows the green onions and sweet peas. I cut the green onions back to start them fresh, and I've frozen what I harvested.
The second pic shows the sage, garlic chives, thyme, lemon thyme, and oregano.
I'm *so* glad to have these done, but oi, I'm ready to fall over now…

More garden adventures…! Finally got my heather plants (four different varieties!) in their planter. 💪
Also replanted my Korean Fir and my rosemary in their own pots, which was long overdue. Hopefully they'll be much happier with the extra space to grow!
Also filled the final red planter with soil, but I don't know what to put in there yet. Nearly time for another trip to the garden store, methinks…
Here's how my red planter setup looks now (With a very helpful @Aila doing some modelling). Apologies for the haphazard blurring!
So we have the heather garden in the front, the empty planter above, and the fern/moss garden below. in the back we have the herb garden on top, the parsley/cilantro on the bottom, and the green onions/sweet peas on the right.
The top foreground planter will get a lot of sun/heat in the summer, so I'll have to work out what will survive in there.
Those gorgeous hens and chicks will be used to fill in the gaps around my heather plants, at least until they grow in and bush up a little. 🌿
Okay, folks, the planters are finished!! Here's how the final planter looks!
We have decorative grass, purple snapdragons, TONS of petunias (in dark purple/reddish purple colours), trailing lobelia in blue, and a couple other plants I don't know the name of (mainly the silvery plant and the two with the smaller purple flowers).
I'm pleased with it. :D Here's hoping it survives! 🤞
Also an update on my heather garden with the hens and chicks added.
