Hi, well Halloween is nearly upon us & the nights will be drawing in but before all that I shall mention the lovely plants that are still flowering. The ‘Cosmos’ still look great, they will keep flowering until the first frosts if you keep dead heading them, same goes for the wonderful ‘Penstemons’ that are […]


OOOH Autumn has definately arrived with a bang! Very windy and rainy today so no gardening today, I must say the plants need a really good drink though. I did a planting job the other day and am glad the newly planted border will get a lovely watering in. Instead of gardening I have been […]

Summer is nearing the end

Well we did get some sunshine in the end, whoopee! The flowers all look wonderful. Now is the time to start thinking about planting the veg patch for Autumn/Winter. Two of the best things to plant right now are Kale & Spinach. With Spinach you can cut tender new growth In Autumn and then leave […]

Well this is the wettest drought I ever did see! Rain, Rain,Rain! On the plus side all the plants are looking so healthy & green, they all badly needed a drink, and a lot of the shrubs were looking very yellow. I have managed to get out there this week, even did some mowing which […]

Spring is here at last

Aah, Spring is here… at last, although it didn’t feel like it today-brrrr!  Walking around the gardens I can see so much that is out now, infact a bit too much is out too early, namely the April-May tulips out a few weeks too quick. Everything will be over together!  All the Daffodils and Narcissus have […]
