    Lavender and Achillea – a winning combination

    30th October 2014Northern CorrespondentStephanie Donaldson

    At this time of year when the colour seems to drain from the garden (and me) it’s good to look back over photos of the garden from the summer. It helps to plan for the new growing season. Here’s a winning plant combination that will definitely be replicated around the borders.

    Airy yellow clusters of Achillea compliment the purple spears of the lavender.

    Today both plants are somewhat lacking in colour although the structure of these  is still there and with a touch of frost this will add a little winter interest to the garden.
