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

Camellia Debbie – flowering

I planted this in the ground last year after having it in a pot since 2016 and then overwintering in the greenhouse each year. So this year is the first time it’s Peres since it’s new position and it’s so pretty. I originally bought it for a garden I was doing at one of my rental properties but couldn’t bring myself to part with it.

Wordless Wednesday- Early February in my garden


Snowdrops at last

I thought they had rotted or been eaten but I should have remembered that plants/bulbs in my northern garden are never as far ahead as the south. So I’m very pleased to have found some flowering when I was out just now tidying up again. I keep thinking I’ve finished tidying but I don’t think I ever will. It’s a bit cold for me really (not good for my chest) but I was glad to be outside. I really miss it in winter. So here are the snowdrops I’ve found. A bit small I know but better than nothing and I’m definitely going to get more next year

Happy New Year 2020

Happy new year everyone! It seems to have come round so quickly! Just sharing a photo of our witch hazel plant that’s in bud – I love seeing things in bud. This is the best picture I could get

Wordless Wednesday – Christmas rose

Happy 1st December!

Apologies first of all for my lack of blog posts lately, life has just been too busy. However, apart from more leave collection and compost spreading (I thought I’d finished but the heap fell over) the garden is ready for winter.

This morning it’s very frosty and looks quite pretty, not sure my pictures do it justice though.
