Box blight ravaged the formal lines of box which meant the old box parterres disappeared in the spring along with the hornbeam towers. Now lavender lines the path, buzzing with bees and providing a larder for my lemon and lavender drizzle cakes. Fastigiate yew have been planted to provide the accents in the distance. The roses and late flowering clematis on the arbours have done so much better and now down below the agastache perfectly blends with the lavender.
