Beef tomato

This is the second we’ve had this year. I don’t really do fruit but Daddy enjoys growing it. A few years back I had a very strange shaped beef tomato and asked an expert at an RHS show what I was doing wrong and I remember him saying you can’t grow them outside in this country, well the ones we’ve grown this year have once again been grown outside so clearly it’s possible!

New rose – Queen Bee

My friend and I visited Fryers garden centre in knutsford last week and I got this new rose partly with some birthday vouchers, it smells lovely and fits well beside the alstroemeria of similar colours

First ever hanging basket

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

Bluebell cottage garden & nursery visit 2022

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.
