We made a list and set about trying to source the plants locally. This seemed to take forever as no where stocked the currant bushes we wanted. While we were searching we also tried to sort out the patch of land that the plants would go on. This was a big task for such as small area!

As we moved though the Summer months we realised we had a big problem. The ground still sloped slightly (even after all our effort) and so the water was running away from the bushes. This had to be remedied otherwise the bushes would surely die from the heat. We carried the rock theme on into this part of the garden as it had worked so well with the trees.
These rings contained the water for the bushes and they survived their first summer.
