Talkback: Garden plants - one-hit wonders

Posted: 20/06/2014 at 13:28
Yes, most certainly. When the peonies are in bloom, I simply love them to bits, I touch them, cup the flowers in my hands, they are so delicate and beautiful. I have 17 in my garden, thinking of adding more.

Talkback: Tree peonies

Posted: 09/05/2014 at 12:59
I have 4 tree peonies in my garden, it has taken 4 years for 2 of them to flower, big, silky deep pink to red, one bloom on each plant, the other 2 did not flower. The flowers have lasted well, so beautiful, it makes me so happy to look at them. I have 15 ordinary peonies, the yellow ones are so gorgeous. I have planted some peonies in my rose beds, I think they'll do and look well together. Here's hoping, will know next year, it takes time for peonies to flower.

Plant addiction

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 13:38

I am absolutely addicted to gardening, I grow most things I like (being on your own means I do not have to hide things I buy or do).  I have so many favourites, on top of the list are roses, certain lilies, peonies, nearly most of the acid loving plants, such as camellias, azaleas,rhododendrons, magnolias blue berries etc.  I grow vegetables as well, favourites are asparagus, sprouting broccoli, beans etc.  Gardening for me is a passion, I am simply an obsessive, compulsive, gardener.  Just cannot get enough of plants. 

Talkback: Early butterflies

I had 16 peacock butterflies hibernating on the ceiling of my chicken shed since early September last year. Today there are only 7 left, the others must have woken up and gone. I did see a peacock this morning, so butterflies are about now, but plenty of bees.
