Nice one Mo I like the fact you have given the plants room to breathe, for the time being, unlike my claustrophobic beds.

I did it in 2013 in a few months. I had to make the skulls in batches as I needed a lot. Once the skulls were made the actual arch did not take that long. All done in my spare time in between work. I hope it is mild but I am at that stage now where I would not be losing 50 percent of my garden without protection to a cold winter. Those days have gone thankfully

Kev, it is rather spaced at the moment but it is too cramped for all the rhododendrons I have put in. Most are small at the moment and will not be really noticeable for 5 or 6 years. But when they start growing I am going to have a problem of thinning and deciding what I really love and what I like. The problem at the moment is that I love everything at the moment. Guessing I have about 50 rhododendrons at the moment. The majority are sub section taliensia which are rather compact and don't get too big. But saying that I have quite a few large species rhododendrons :roll: Lets just see how things go
