    I've just read through this topic, and I am seriously amazed by both the work that has gone into it, and the results. Brilliant!

          WP_20180613_08_33_47_Pro.jpg Just a little up date... 4 years on and I'm pleased how my little parterre turned out,The 'Heritage' Rose in the top right corner didn't fair so well so I changed them for 'Sceptre'd Isle' so we'll see how they get on.:blue thumb:

              It is absolutely divine Loli. Is that a box hedge? A very special place to enter and admire - away from the rest of the garden. I can feel such peace there...

                        Hello lolimac, I'm new on here and must say it's been great to read/see this project start to finish in one go tonight. Well done, your parterre is fantastic.
                        Please could you tell me which is the rose growing up the posts and along the ropes at the back? Do you find that the rope provides good support...any problems in windy weather etc.?
