Bees, Butterflies and Blooms

Posted: 27/02/2012 at 22:30

I am pleased to say that our local council already plants wild flower 'meadows' on roundabouts and central reservations.  The scene changes week on week with certain flowers becoming more prominent, before the next one takes over.  I'm keen to sow something in my own garden, last year I did a test pot from a free seed packet given to me at Gardening Scotland, but I faffed about too much and didn't get around to doing it until mid July.  This year, I'll be direct sowing into a bit of empty ground the first chance I get.

Talkback: Escallonia

I planted a pink flowering Escallonia two summers ago, the very harsh winter of 2010/11 (central Scotland) didn't kill it, but I did have to prune out some dead stems. It didn't flower much last summer, but it's looking very healthy and has grown back brilliantly. I'm looking forward to seeing it buzzzzzzzing this summer!
