Wildthings – Plants that plant themselves but you love them anyway!

  Many people dislike plants that self-sow in their garden at random times in random places but I absolutely love them! Not only is their appearance a source of free plant material (invaluable for a large garden), but its is also a source of pleasure at their ingenuity and resourcefulness. Now the fairies in my…

Wonderful Bearded Irises

It’s the exciting time of year when all the bearded irises have started to bloom. All the more exciting as it has been 3 years or more since some of them have flowered. Mainly  due to I would say not enough water when they were forming their flower buds the previous year. This has all…

My Old Fashioned Rose Garden

I am in the middle of renovating, finishing and replanting my rose garden. This is an ongoing project that I do quietly plodding along on my own pace adding the odd plant here and there, dividing up perennials etc. A view across my garden a few years ago, the exquisite roses ‘Mme Isaac Perieire’ and…

Beautiful Garden Vignettes

I quite like it every now and then when your garden provides a beautiful  vignette. A little garden scene of colour and plant combinations that were either deliberate or accidental. Providing for one fleeting moment in garden time a picture of exquisite beauty and fragrance. Here we have some perennial wallflowers, a euryops daisy and…
