Well, getting on with making my countryish garden, this week I bought 12 perrenials for £10 – a bit worse for wear (and some smallish) but they’ll be great given time.
Also my friend brought some lemon thyme which, planted in a corner where the flag was removed, covers the hard edges and a couple of other which i don’t know the name of at the mo.
The ones I’ve bought over the last couple of weeks are lupin,silene alprestris (little white flowers which look gorgeous in front of a big high bunch of deep red daisies which i haven’t got the name for because they didn’t have a little plastic istruction card). Trollius cheddar, campanula white and blue, (which i love) poppy,white bells, nemesia a couple of dephiniums, fox groves and pink dwarfs. all at bargain prices. My friend brought a few from his garden and picked up some bargains for me too.
What a list! Doesn’t seem that many in the garden at the moment but I know they’ll build up and spread out – it already looks loads better than it did a few weeks ago.
That’s me in a nutshell and I think i’ll use this blog to put things down as they happen just for my own record. Wish i’d done it from the beginning.
