Garden Pictures 2015

Posted: 05/06/2015 at 23:08

Hi davids10, what's the name of the pinky peachy rose with the clematis growing through it? Pretty colours, it is one rose isn't it? We used to have roses similar colour when a child but not as nice as that. U have a beautiful garden. What's name of the pale pink poppy as well?

There's orangey........

Geum, berberis darwinii, tulips, crocosmia, day lily, calendula, rose, pansy, welsh poppy, California poppy, gaillarda, and think its a helenium r something that looks like that. Didn't realise I had so much orange.

I've got an orange day lilly Verdun, never seen variegated ones, got a couple of orange calendula already in flower but annuals arent they. Orange wud look nice next to my big hosta I've acquired this year, actually, will put sum calendula near it.

Like the erysimum Bizzie Lizzie, orange and purple on the same flower, how good is that? But just looked it up and it says its tender, u live in france dont u? Is our frost here likely to kill it, do u dig it up? 

Just looked up Berberis darwinii, got one! Thought it may be berberis but didn't know full name, its just past its best, the bees love it and the birds perch on it outside my front window.

Nice one Rhod! I've put my Tangerine near a purple plant, mauves bowles, may take Mai Tai out of pot and put in front of Totally Tangerine, ive got plenty plants in pots, will prob grow better in ground, i was rushing planting them yesterday as it started hailstoning on me. I've just taken a photo of them on my hudl to post but can't do it, never posted a pic before but clicked on tree icon etc. Maybe can't post them off a hudl.

Will look out for vine weevils as I've put Mai Tai in a pot, wud get a bit lost in garden at present, only low growing. I've seen the odd vine weevil in sum of my pots. I read yesterday that geums r a good container plant.

Great, thanks, I may be feeling generous enough to pull 3 small pieces off Totally Tangerine after summer, for 2 sisters, seeing as I only need a small amount. I'll look for more info on geums. Don't think I'll be stopping at 4, just a few more, but my back garden is  being taken over by fruit and veg,  it was hard to decide which to chose, there were 10  r more to chose from, got the Tangerine cos of what I'd read on here

Ive no room in my garden for any more plants but I'm still buying them, you just can't resist, can u? I partly blame members on this forum for showing all the lovely pics, tho I've always bought too many plants. Bought Totally Tangerine yesterday from Beethams in south Lakes along with few other plants. Just read that Totally Tangerine is sterile, so sum geums r sterile and sum not? Does anyone know if Mai Tai is sterile, I bought that one as well, I have had 2 others a few years but don't know name of them. Think i'll buy a packet of geum seeds, r they easy to grow from seed does anyone know?  

How can they get it so wrong

Just got drenched putting my new plants into front garden, plus hailstone going through my thick winter jumper that I've got out of storage, I'm in north west. Hope it doesn't rain too much at Chelsea.

Sanjy,  luv your containers u've made, your garden is full of character. What colour of paint have u painted your summerhouse in? Wud like my shed that colour, and what colour is your lettuce frame? I want to make a vertical strawberry planter when I find a heat treated pallet and a frame like yours for lettuce wud be useful, tho it wud damage our fences if I fastened it to them. I've only a small garden so need to try sum vertical planting as running out of space. I've got electric saws etc, I just need sum pallets!

Reighton Nursery near Filey

Posted: 04/04/2015 at 00:17

We stayed near Filey 2 weeks ago and visited Reighton nursery, lovely, v big, we were there ages, bought quite a few plants including 2 hellebores and the sweet box plant. I live in north west England but have visited many garden centres/nurseries all over England, Scotland and Wales, Reighton certainly one of the best for variety and price.
