May update

by Wendy Syddall

Lots of new things to show you so thought I’d do one update with them all.

I love this time of year, when the garden is full of colour especially forget-me-nots and something different catches your eye every time you go outside. My seeds in the greenhouse are doing well as are the plants I overwintered – dahlias, pelargoniums (I only have a couple in pots – don’t grow many as I try to concentrate on bee friendly plants), and tender fuchsias.

I have also bought some new plants – a pink for my little owl planter, a perennial wallflower (which smells lovely) and a tiarella (relative of the heuchera I think).

I have also included my favourite tulip Jan Reus of which I originally had 10 and only have these left. They are such a lovely dark red colour but very hard to get in the shops. There is a picture of a wallflower grown from seed by me and a pieris from the back garden.
