Beautiful sunsets

There have been some amazing sunsets recently some of which I have captured with my phone camera. Although I haven’t posted for a long while I have still been gardening for customers. I have been mainly cutting back foliage & perennials & planting tulip bulbs. I have just bought some seed potatoes ready for chitting. […]

Planting ideas

This was my raised border a few years ago now. It was full of flowers & foliage. It is a funny shape with one long curved edge. I put the tall Red Hot Pokers at the back with the feathery dark purple of the fennel, it worked quite well. I do like using purples & blues […]

Autumn Gardening

Hello there! I am back writing my blog after a few months away from it. Summer was busy & now we are in Autumn which I love as a season especially in the gardens. Cosmos flowers are still blooming, Japanese anemones are still flowering …just! The Sedums look beautiful with their sumptuous, succulent leaves bursting […]

The Allium’s are looking fantastic, the Azalea’s & Rhododendron’s look particularly colourful & vibrant this year. On the vegetable garden front […]

Has Spring finally sprung?

New Year Plans

I have not written my blog for a long while. There wasn’t much to report but I did manage to grow some Brussell Sprouts & harvested them Christmas morning for a Christmas dinner & they were beautiful, so much nicer than the shop bought ones. I will be growing some more of those this year. […]
