Saw this yesterday in one of the gardens. I was taken with it, like the blue green leaves and flowers.

Could someone tell me what is?

Thanks

Just been catching up, beautiful pictures

Just found a pic taken yesterday from my first ngs, doesn't really show much of the garden but the views were amazing. There was a large poly tunnel to the right of the pic and also a large veg patch all in rasied beds.

Did have a couple of pea pods when I was there and they were so sweet

First time growing garlic. there's definatley some yellowing leaves at the bottom but greener at the top. I'm thinking that when all the leave are yellow then that's the time to harvest?

I have a couple of large ferns that have been living in large terracota pots for the last couple of years. I had a lovely fushia once that lived over them, it wasn't hardy so died but there are many hardy ones

Underplanting aubretia

Posted: 09/06/2013 at 19:24

Hello, I've been introducing aubreittas here over the last couple of years. They are perinnial so will come back next year. I think the trick is to cut them back hard after they have flowered. I'm still a bit shy of doing this but the ones I cut back the hardest last year, gave me the best show this.........some of them are still flowering.

This year I'm going to delibratley leave some seed heads on a few to see if they self seed.
