More half-term gardening!


By gwendas


Hi everyone
I’m being so lucky with the weather this week! Some rain last night but cleared away to a lovely sunny day this morning so I just had to go to Trelawney, my lovely local garden centre didn’t I?

Had great fun planting them out.
I also bought some seeds to do tomorrow so maybe more photos then, weather permitting!
Love Jo x

Those look lovely Jo. What did you buy? There are some there I don't recognize.

You've got a lovely selection there Jo.

Pretty! Tulips, Primroses...And do I spy another Hellebore there, Jo? What's its name? And an Erysimum 'Bowles' Mauve'? And a small dark-leaved Hebe - 'Caledonia'? I knew you were getting Bellis - what's the other small shrub - can't quite make it out... I've been having nearly as much fun trying to work out what you bought as you did buying them! LOL. Well done - a good day's 'shop'.

Somebody is going to be busy . :o)

You're good Spritz! The other shrub is a Christmas Box - it smells gorgeous doesn't it? I'm thinking of winter interest next year as advised by your blogs!
The best retail therapy ever?!

Oh yes - I can see now! I've been tempted by that one, too - but I can't see where I could put it to be near enough to the house to let that fragrance 'waft'...

Nice compliment, Jo - thank you. Glad to have been of assistance!

I am twitching to get planting, but it will only be some free Begonias that came today.

Oh well done Spritz. Which is the one with the lovely pink flowers that looks like an hibiscus???

Hi Gilli
It's a pink hellebore called Walbertons Rosemary and it's gorgeous! Look forward to seeing photos of your verbenas Peaches and Cream - sounds delicious!
