Evening all phhhoooaaarrrrrr how hot!!! Almost unbearable at hampton court..... I have to say I was very disappointed with it this year. Not overly impressed with the plants in the displays only a few struck me ...... Thought the plants to buy were poor and v expensive. Only one I saw I really wanted and that was digitallis illumination raspberry it was lush..... Sadly no agapanthus well there were but they were quite £££. I would get bigger better plants from the oaktree nursery so sadly still had a lovely day out withy friend


 And lastly to cool me down:-

orchid i have been having a scour and both camps are represented.... I'm gonna chuck her out into the border and see, although its an evergreen so i will need to much and protect in the autumn..... now lets hope someone is selling them at hampton court so i can buy about 6 more!!!! 4 blue and another 2 white should do it!!! I have midnight blue in a pot and it is 'ignored' every year it is full of flowers so........ The nursery is a small independent nursey called oak tree, they geo a lot of their plants themselves and for the majority the rest they have to buy are all english grown. Chicky seeing as you do go to long acres i wold highly recommend a visit to oak tree its opposite the stirrups pub its ace(RG426LH is the postcode) ( oh and their hearty gardeners bfast is only £4.99) Their plants are fantastic and they have a healthy and reasonable tree collection ........
