My Garden today.


Hi, These are the latest pictures of our garden, its 80% in flower now and were going away for a few days, fingers crossed every thing will be OK when we come home.

A half basket of “Marinka”

Hanging basket of “Pink Marshmallow”

Small hanging basket of “Ringwood Market.”

Baskets of “Ringwood Market” and “Harry Gray”

“Harry Gray”

“Ringwood Market” These small baskets were just 70p from “Plants Galore” so we bought 10.

Nice pictures. Have you got someone to water it all for you or are you just keeping your fingers crossed?

That's fantastic! All that colour - aren't they tremendous!

Do you keep them in the Green house for the winter?

Just incredible, what a fantastic show of flowers, bet people stop all the time to admire them

A sight to behold what stunning displays you have you should be proud of yourself and what pleasure people must have living in your area from this. Hope they are all ok for your return.

I would definitely have to stop and stare at your very well tended front garden if I walked down your street . . . . .

Hi all, Thank you for your lovely comments.
Frybo, Yes i'm afraid its just fingers crossed, mind you we do add Vermiculite, Perlite and Water Crystals to all our baskets.
Tetratoonie, thank you very much.
Stickitoffee, I keep them in cold frames in the garden except the cuttings i take late in the season and they grow on in our two spare bedroom windows.

I can't believe you only have a cold frame and window sills - amazing.

Wonderful. I adore Fuchsias and have grown many but sadly I lost most of them last winter to the severe frosts. I would love some of ' ringwood market'. Will try Morgan & Thompson. Well done. Your show is impressive indeed. bredakelly
