My passion in life is gardening and specifically growing flowers from seed

Month: March, 2022


I’m cheating again slightly here as the second picture isn’t actually of a tree in my garden but is so pretty I could t resist including it here


I feel like I’m cheating a bit here because this is a house plant and my blog is about my garden but I really want to share this picture and it’s a good job I took it when I did because the flowers are fading already.

First camellia of the year in my garden 2022

Sorry to bombard with posts after being quiet for a while! Spring is my favourite season as I love seeing new things pop up in the garden every day and signals the end of winter (hopefully). I’m quite impatient in wanting to know if some plants have survived or not and so far it’s looking quite good.

The only daffodils to flower in my garden this year

These tête-à-têtes are the only faithful daffodils to flower this year. A few others have come up but not started necessarily with buds but these have been in the trough for years and faithfully return every year. They really brighten up the garden.
