The Messy Garden - The 4th Series

The current hot & rainless weather had made it worse for most of my plants. They tend to get too leggy and spring out here & there. This is truly a challenging factor for me to arrange them in this small tight spot. I really don't want to loose of them but again the issue is not the species rather its the space.

Most of the leaves got burned due the heat and all of them are in dire need of pruning. I had manage to do some cleaning, pruning & re-arranging but I'm still not satisfied with the outcome. Perhaps I might re-do the whole thing again.

Now just thinking about that idea that might just perhaps work this time around.


  1. Everything looks good for a dry period. We spend a lot of time re-doing in the garden, don't we?

    1. We surely do.
      Dry and hot day sometimes inspire us to spend more time outdoors and gardening.

  2. One thing I like about your garden/blog is that everything is so original... no faking/copying. Thanks for sharing this mess, now I know my garden is not alone. Some of my plants have dried up terribly. Time for real gardening again!!

    1. I like authenticity.
      Its my idea of originality and reality - and that gardening do need time and consume mostly on arranging, pruning, planting and sometimes the plant doesn't do so well too.

      Thank you for following up my messy garden series.
      And I bet most gardeners go thru what we go thru when they are tight with time.

  3. Dry leaves aside, sometimes I do prefer when the plants intermingle with each other, popping out in between unrestrained, to give it a more natural look. Best look will be a few months after a garden overhaul, neither too bare nor too wild. ;-)

    1. There is this balance thing. Not too much & not too little.
      It happens just like what you said.
      Guess that's what gardening is all about.
