Have been with my daughter Kat, who came to represent all her siblings for my birthday!, to a great nursery nearby at Lostwithiel. Can highly recommend the Duchy Nursery there. It’s my favourite retail therapy but definitel not Kat’s who prefers buying shoes! So was thrilled when she paid the remainding amount after I used my £15 garden vouchers I had been given as a present.
Bought a Hydrangea Quercifolia, a mock orange, a mexican orange blossom and a euonymus alatus which is a gorgeous red foliaged shrub for Autumn. Can’t wait for half term starting Friday because not sure I’ll get them planted before then! Want to put some last minute bulbs in too in the front garden. May have time in the early evenings this week after school before the clocks change next Sunday.
Have put some new photos on my site. So many plants still flowering as we have had some lovely sunny afternoons this past week.
So thrilled because my passion flower has bloomed!
Autumn containers looking so bright and cheerful too.
The weather on the change today though. The wind has got up so the oak tree at the bottom of the garden has shed many leaves this afternoon – good for leaf mould? Advice please!
Hope all is well with you and your gardens?
