Hi again! Lilylouise

I noticed on the video that you had Blueberries growing in a pot, can you tell me which plant you used and what time of the year can I buy one to plant up.

Regards Chris


Chris - I think my plants are Bluecrop - I do have a couple of other varieties in a small border as well - but the ones in pots do best. They are about 5 years old now

Spring is probably a good time to plant them  they like acid conditions and plenty of water

Pam just beautiful. How big is the back garden I reckon it was about the size of mine but what youve fitted into the space is amazing. You obviously spend hours in the garden

Well, comparing it with my patch, let's just say that I won't be posting any photos of my petunias or fuschias.

 

In case of any misunderstanding I would add that the emphasis is very much on my words 'I could draw comfort'...I could never match Pam's eye for neatness & attention to detail, a view I have expressed on so many occasions.

Thanks Lilylouise, will certainly look at buying a couple of plants for pots on the patio the family love Blueberries.

I love the video and have looked at it a couple of times including my OH who is amazed at the beautiful selection of flowers and plants, well done.

Regards

David - you have always been very kind about our garden - thankyou

The photos I have seen of yours  show that you grow beautiful flowers  etc. so I am not surprised that your beans and tomatoes are good  The beans on the allotment are doing so much better than the ones in the garden.

Thank you for your kind words & for being so understanding, Pam.

Maybe I could  make you a cake for your next soiree.

To Die for!!!!!!! Well Done Pam! (Oh! and Barry)

That is about the size of ours. That is very inspiring we (well me really) have the idea of doing away with grass in time. I think the idea of rooms is lovely

Hi Pam,

Thank you for sharing your wonderful garden with us it was really interesting to see it! I actually visited an NGS garden near to where I live here in North Somerset today, which was at least a couple of acres! I have to say although the gardens are different in size yours matched it for interest so very well done!

I have wondered about opening my garden in the future and I think that I now have a long way to go to match yours!!...

Once again well done and good on you for sharing your passion with like minded folks and raising money for charity at the same time!

Cheers

Higgy

Your photos are beautiful Higgy  I am sure loads of people would be interested in seeing a Wildlife garden - me for one  There are no rules about size or type of garden in the NGS - just about 45 minutes of interest for visitors

Ummm...

It's the 45minutes of interest I can't get my head around!!.... i can chatter a bit though, that should stretch out my 5 minutes of interest a bit longer!! LOL
