Class 2: view of a woodland bed in a garden setting, brief description to be included

Entries: 5
Entry by John Good

A shady bed under a N-facing wall
This bed is shady and never dries out and thus suits woodland plants suh as arisaemas and lilies as well as many Himalayan meadow plants, including meconopsis, primulas and irises. The wall itself provides an ideal home for tender shrubs and climbers.

Judge's comment: lovely choice of plants
Entry by Elizabeth Maddock
