That was before the heatwave ! The rocks and gravel must have kept the soil moist and cool. Well done.

Such a varied collection - must have taken ages to choose all those! I do love the seedling campanula - if there are seeds surplus to requirements don't throw them away!
Is the little golden shrub the Santoline? What variety is it please - have never seen a gold one.

Thanks SG andDB
Linda-it's the best bit of my garden at the moment
Stera-the Campanula turned up in a pot of Something else.Possibly C.cochlearifolia x something else.It was much better last year.The Santolina is called Lemon Fizz.

The plants are doing well. Do you keep a strict eye on them to stop them going rampant?

It's only the small mauve Allium that is a problem as it seeds a lot.I've got rid of a lot after flowering.It's a lovely little plant but needs deadheading straight away.
Some of the others may outgrow their space in time,but there is nothing that can't be easily removed or cut back.
