All looking good I planted 2 new honeysuckles and repotted all my fuchsias.

Ceanothus dead

Posted: 29/04/2013 at 08:23

On way back from Edinburgh Botanics yesterday I popped into Dobbie in Dunfermiline for a coffee on way home .

But had to have a week peek at plants to and they had this stunning lemon&lime ceanothus.

If I had room I would have bought it.

But if my Standard Ceanothus not does nto start to grow I may go back for it.

Varigated leaves it was so pretty.
