This Yellow floating heart (or dwarf waterlily) is a native British pond plant which came with my pond starter collection from Wetland Plants. It is planted quite deep and in a decent sized pot so may get quite large, which would be nice. It doesn’t look like much at the moment!
This was inspired from Monty Don on Gardeners world. A small, heavy fruiting patio Raspberry. Perfect for our little garden. Found online at J Parkers and a good plant was delivered. Bought a new pot from the Powderham Garden Centre for it to live in.
An interesting coloured Crocus which we bought as part of an offer on an impulse trip to Dobies off the M5. Planted up with Hyacinthus orientalis ‘Gipsy Queen’ in the white square pot on the Patio.
A lovely little early crocus, bringing a bit of colour into the garden during the drab days of early spring. I do find Crocus do tend to gradually disappear though … rotting away and squirrels probably to blame. Crocus tommasinianus reduced in numbers quite a lot. I planted this new batch (on offer from RHS) […]
I’ve not grown this before and I was surprised at how it turned out. Lots of yellow flowers and a strong plant. Seems to be great in my dry soil and established quickly.
A wonderful tall Bergamot. Bright red flowers on single stalks. Mine was struck down with terrible Downy Mildew in it’s first growing season. It is now recovered with a lot of watering and looks to be a lot better now. Fingers crossed it will survive the winter as it is a lovely plant.
