'Oh to be in Brian's garden now that spring is here!'

"Oh yes"
I agree what a smashing bit of a days work those fourty years ago Brian,
Ive three magnolia like some of the most beautiful trees and shrubs the flowers dont last long enough,

Shrubs are always a good buy and worth every penny,
Nice one Brian.

Linda
if only you new what is not in the pictures,there is still a fair bit of winter clearing still to be done in between potting and things.

wonderful :) i wish i could grow magnolias i love them but i understand they need a particular ph of soil

29 Apr, 2013

 

Billbo, why not try a Stellata, in a large pot. They are very slow growing, and you could just use ericaceous compost.

Bjs : This has got to be an awesome sight in fact Blossom wonderland.

Stroller It is while it lasts unfortunately the ground is already white with slippery Petals that require constant sweeping to keep things safe.
