Hippuris vulgaris

This oxygenator for the pond arrived as bareroot bunches in December 2020 with a pond starter kit from Wetland plants. This was sunk in an aquatic pot and fixed with stones on the second shelf of the pond. Will see how it does!

Veronica spicata ‘Chista’

I bought this on impulse as I had a really nice Veronica at my Manchester Allotment and this one fitted my colour scheme. It got powdery mildew really badly straight away, but I increased watering and it seems to have recovered well. It’s even putting out some late flower spikes.

Linaria purpurea

I really like the flowers and the upright habit on these wild Toadflax plants. They do just seem to appear in peoples gardens without them being planted. I brought one for a small amount when I saw one. It fits in well at the end on my main bed path, just doing its own thing.
