ITV Alan Titchmarsh - Britain's Best Garden's

Posted: 01/04/2014 at 08:15

I spent an hour yesterday evening trying to email that address but the Postmaster could not accept mail for it as the size was greater than allowed by remote host!  I had tried to send nine pics and a paragraph about my garden.  If the drizzle continues this morning I may try reducing the size!

Thank you everybody.  It is all the lovely feedback from you all to my 2014 thread on the forum that has encouraged me.

The lovely warm weather we had in Bristol for Mothers Day yesterday did the trick and this morning all three of the "outdoor tomatoes" for the Mr Fothergills trial have germinated.  TIm Foster wrote in the "Guardian" yesterday that Bristol was the place to live if you had green fingers and I have to agree with him.  As we drove through the city the daffodils were in bloom everywhere and the verges and roundabouts and front gardens were glorious.  Bristol most certainly deserved the accolade of Green City of Europe for 2015 and just think, as soon as my Golden Jubilee Garden celebrations are over I can start celebrating that!

Happy Mothers Day.

Here are my flowers and bottles from three of my sons today and had a wonderful lunch cooked by the partner of one of them.  They knew to give me a break from gold as the garden is full of golden flowers for my Golden Jubilee Year.

Very little gets thrown out if it will hold plants, chicky.  In the front garden there is an old zinc baby bath full of daffs at the moment, two leaking zinc watering cans planted with double daisies and Californian poppies, an old enamel breadbin full of tulips,an old rusty iron wheelbarrow full of tulips, stipa tenuissima grass and polyanthus. an old tyre with Dutch irises about to flower as well as the old garden coffee table in the porch.  The back garden has chimney pots full of flowers too.  .. Glad you like my celebrations, Green Fingered Milkey and Ashleigh 2.

Yellow is the colour.......

To see some of my yellow flowers out now in my Golden Jubilee Garden go to 2014 thread on the Forum.  Thank you for all the ideas for the rest of the year.

The species tulips will come up every year and flower and flower.  I have a yellow tulip that is on my Roll of Honour for fifty years service in my garden.  It was here when i came fifty years ago and still going strong. - not very tall and yellow.
