Thks Cinders. Actually it was a disastrous year for me iris wise Sticki, lost one that cost me twenty quid..botrytis and another from soft rot..several from the bot actually, and next door who loaned me their front garden decided to have a new roof and the scaffolders kindly walked all over half a dozen of my breeding stock...MEN! grrrrrrr

oh no!!!! :-( that is very very sad.

on the plus side the iris you gave me is showing showing the blue colour ~ i keep going to look to check how far its got, the colour is lovely.

Such beauties, such a shame about your losses, was the £20 one very special?:-)

Yes BA, it was called Island Sunset..imported from the States, maybe it will be cheaper this year lol!
Janey that is Blazing Sunrise!
Glad to hear your iris doing ok Sticki, especially as I know you dont get a lot of sun in most of your garden. Still its hot enough to bake even your patch at present lol!

Beauties all of them.....sorry you lost some of your best ones...

Whoa! That is just stunning! Now I am totally 'green with'!!

Id rather have a garden of irises than the "green with" Karen, but did love Joe's garden and the yorkshire garden..
I must admit I got a bit fed up with showgardens and would love to have seen more of individual plants.

28 May, 2012

 

Hmm...funny you should say that Tet. I loved Joe's garden...the colours were so warm and all that gorgeous wood and trees....just lovely. I would have much preferred to see more plants and less celebrities myself! Or at least, if they have to have celebs....get some gardening celebs. Hugh Dennis had had far too much champagne and Goldie....not a gardener clearly! Stephanie Cole was the only one who was really interested, and the lovely Mary Berry of course :) I felt I didn't see much of the show gardens at all except Joe's and Green with and that awful one with the bright blue water pools....didn't like that one. Oh and as usual we had to be obsessed with Dermot Gavin's 'thing'. I would have liked to have seen more of the gardens myself...I didn't feel the camera work was up to the usual high standard.

the best view of chelsea this year that i have seen is willinilli's blog ~ she has some lovely pictures ~ much more interesting than the bbc was!

28 May, 2012

 

Me too, thanks Stick!

28 May, 2012

And me too.....

I got bored with all the Chelsea coverage...very disappointing. When watching, it said if I pressed the red button I would see Christine Walkden in the great marquee ... so I did and...I didn't ... it was all sorts of boring stuff:-(

That red button is very disappointing I think, I seem to remember pressing it once but you just got a loop of something repeating - didn't bother again!
