Goodbye Lord of the Flies

Yellow sunset coprosma is no more. Dad sawed it to the ground. Now there is a bare patch where it used to be, and surprise, some nerine bulbs are buried there.

No more flies! And wasps!

I now need to make a short list of what could go there, not another spreading shrub, maybe just more bulbs, or bromeliads, succulents, ferns.

Shortlist -
boston ivy to cover the brick wall
cistus rock rose
lambs ears
hen and chickens ferns
creeping thyme
busy lizzies

We had a lot of rain over the last few days and it's been hot and humid. I won't plant till autumn as its hard to establish plants now until the cooler weather.
