Mixed planting on tufa
Saxifrages, Sempervivum and Aquilegia in showing early spring colour of pinks, cream and green

Entry by Graham Catlow

Selected for colour of foliage and flower, foliage interest and seed head interest
Pulsatilla 'Blaue Glocke' with seed heads. Underplanted with Allium karataviense. Height provided by Tulip 'Queen of the Night'. The seed heads of both the Pulsatilla and the Allium continue the interest for an extended period. In the background is Iris 'Black Swan' which flowers a little later than the rest.

Judge's comment: Effective use of form and colour

View of the Terrace
A warm raised bed with gritty, chalky soil; planted with shrubby daphnes, Polygala 'Lillet', pink phlox and tulips. Early in the year there are masses of dwarf bulbs such as Scilla messenaica. In autumn there is a great shlowing of Colchicum agrippinum.
