Visit to the Old Vicarage Gardens, East Ruston, Norfolk. 19/07/14

Hope you have a wonderful time - its a great garden.  My favourite bit is the view of the stripy lighthouse through the hedge - probably because there are so many gorgeous plants to choose from that its impossible to pick one out.

hope Friday is fine, but not too hot.  And remember the camera.  Maybe Artjak can sweet talk another coach driver

Thanks Dove - its taken a few years, but it makes it all the more special if its one of your own babies

Heres a couple of my patio pots too - as you can see, i always seem to gravitate to the blues

Borders looking great Dove - love the yellows and purples together.  Morning Glory wigwam is a great idea too - might borrow that one next year

Morning all - fine at the moment but showers expected - will try and dodge them.  Have a few plants that need to get in the garden and a few that need potting on.  Plus lots of things that just need looking at - love this time of year

Hope Stacey has a wonderful day at HC - there were agapanthus EVERYWHERE - so she won't be disappointed

What's the star in your garden right now

Lizzie - laurentia is an annual for me - but flowers like mad til the first frosts.  It used to be quite hard to find, but now the GCs over here have it quite frequently when the rest of their annuals come in.  Its also called isotoma - just googled it, and T&M sell seeds, although i have never grown it from scratch myself

Stacey - if you go down the lavender route, check out the floral marquee at HC - there is a stunning display of all sorts of colours - you could mix a few of them for a different look

Morning all - hope mini-Daisy enjoyed her schooltrip - sounds like a long day. One more day til the weekend - this week has just flown by
