The "Araucaria Walk" before replanting and regeneration.
The neglected North East Corner of “The Shambles” shaded by the “Araucaria walk” seemed a wasted space. Bordering Abelia grandiflora and Murraya panniculata shrubs were liberated and the few subshrubs cleared to allow walking with ease under the trees.
These plants were among those added to the area
Philodendron calloum compactum
Draecaena godseffiana “Florida Beauty”
Justicia nodosum x 2 transplanted from elsewhere in the garden.
The planting of the unfinished north west corner of the garden under the “Rainforest Walk” continued. Many plants raised from cutting or new plants had already been added along the north facing edge looking into the light. The following were planted into the corner. There is much to do to continue the cleanup of this area.
Chamaedora elegans (Parlour palm) x 5
Codiaeum variegatum “Picassos Paintbrush”
Cordylline fruticosa x 5 including “Wilis Gold” and red varieties.
Thankfully rain and intermittent showers have supported our new plantings, as there is no irrigation in the garden and especially into these distant corners.
