Hebe 'Louise'


Hebe 'Louise' (Hebe)

I had to give this some winter protection - but it was worth it, to see it flowering again.

As long as you know that she isn't a very hardy lady...

Not like me eh!!....lol

And me - especially today. Is your weather being v.v.v. annoying? I wish it would either RAIN..or not. It can't make its mind up!

Yes it is...we had heavy rain last night....hurrah....but its fizzled out...its still dry 8 inches or so deep.........we shouldn't grumble....but we willl....lol
I'm wondering if this lovely hebe will like being in a pot...plunged into the border in the summer and brought into the greenhouse to overwinter.....any thoughts?

It's been on and off all day here - but only 1mm on my gauge. What good is that? I really hope we get some 'proper' rain soon - I still have the hose going!

Yes - that sounds like a good plan for 'Louise'. She isn't a very big Hebe, so she wouldn't need a huge pot, after all!

Thanks Spritz......it is now nearly 9pm and has been raining steadily.for about an hour..not to hard......hope it stays that way till about 5am thismorning...the garden will enjoy that :-o))

I wish! I have turned the hose off, but we've only had 2mm of rain altogether since last night. Really not enough! I 'do' hope we get more tonight.

Time for bed. Night-night! xx

It poured most of the night here...the plants look very happy :-))

Nope. Again - a sprinkling, and another light shower this morning so far, but the sun keeps poking through, so no 'real' rain again, I fear.

Yes, I have to agree, this is a very pretty hebe. No more hebes for me though...too tender.

Some are hardy, Karen...honest! Not all, admittedly......
