I’m sorry to say that I didn’t plant it and looking at the state of the basket I may not be able to use it again but I’m enjoying looking at it
After a real heatwave here in the UK the weather is much cooler today and ideal for a visit to the Bluebell Cottage garden and nursery in Dutton, nr Warrington. I’ve never been before but have bought plants in the post and was eager to see the gardens, I wasn’t disappointed, they are beautiful, so pretty and colourful with just the sort of herbaceous plants I like. I was also impressed they manage to stand up for themselves with no support. Mine certainly need staking. I took lots of pictures and here are some.

This was probably my first garden visit since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. Its a new garden and only 30 minutes from me and the most northerly RHS garden in this country so I have been eager to visit for a while. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I was very pleasantly surprised as I don’t think there was a part I didn’t like. I love cottagey garden long borders with lots of flowers and that’s a lot of what I saw yesterday. We also had the unique opportunity to see some of the only professionals in the world trimming a cloud bonsai tree with tiny scissors and being watched by several other staff. The garden isn’t finished yet and I’m sure if and when I go again it is likely to be different again as more areas currently in progress are finished and opened to the public. I took lots of pictures and here are some of them.
