    Camelia is growing nicely on the sunnyside of the garden. I’ll run it passed the wife as she does like them.

    I’ve shaped the laurel into a tree shape to allow for under planting, as that is situated with in slightly less shaded area.

    The tree fern is in, but I’m not sure if it’s alive or not. It does seem to have sent out roots (I made a small hole to add a further stake and noticed roots) but no signs of fronds (although it’s only been a couple of weeks since planting). If there’s no sign of life in the crown next year, I’ll put a small one in there.

    I’m hoping to put some ostrich ferns around the bottom of the tree fern, interspersed with some hostas and Salvia Amistad.
