Tapestry

Week 18 – Knightsbridge living wall maintenance

Last week we were back in Knightsbridge carrying out our regular health check on the pair of living walls we installed last year. I was delighted to see that the plants are knitting together beautifully to create a wonderful green tapestry. Liriope muscari, Soleirolia soleirolii, Euonymus fortunei ‘Harlequin’, Brunner macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’, Pachysandra terminalis ‘Green Carpet’, Asarum europaeum and Bergenia cordifolia ‘Purpurea’ with their differing leaf shape, colour and size have combined to create a picture that I rarely predict correctly. That’s the joy of experimenting with plant varieties and planting combinations… surprise!
