Is that a Tamarisk in the centre,Hywel?

Yes, It's coming into flower soon and it's getting too big. The branches are tangled up with the Holly tree.

Looks fine to me, as it always does. I love the collection of little cats too.

I can't see why it needs a revamp Hywel it looks good ,I like the fencing ..

Yes , I agree with Amy. It looks fine to me too !

Thank you all ... It looks fine from a distance in a photo :)
However it needs attention because the Holly and Tamarisk are too close together and their branches are becoming tangled up with each other. The conifer is too big for me to keep tidy and the ground is rampant with Ajuga London Pride Aquilegias gone mad and weeds.
Oh and some of the slabs are wobbly :D

I can see what you mean Hywel now.

I like it too. The fencing is very nice. I would get rid of the conifer as it's just a round blob. Can't see the weeds & other things but it all looks nice & full. A nice garden.
I had a lovely big patch of London Pride but it got scorched last summer. I thought it would grow back when the cooler weather came but it didn't, only two little sprigs, the rest black crisps. The bits that survived are now in a shadier spot , however I notice that the flowers coming are leaning towards the sun, seems I can't win!

I'm sorry your London Pride got scorched Feverfew, I could send you some if you like. I have loads and I will have to get rid of some of it.

Thank you Thruppenybit :) x

Thank you, it looks all right from a distance. I will write a blog when I rearrange it and then you'll be able to see why.
