 Some snaps from Spetchley Park Gardens in Worcester. It's so beautiful there.

coming from retail this won't be an individual store's fault personally, they might be asked to water every day, but whether management have enough hours in the day to devote to someone standing outside watering, when there's queues building, customers that need helping, delivery processing etc etc, I can understand how plant welfare falls to the waste side.

I have an allotment so anything I can pop in there! This year we've only had chance to grow a couple of things here and there. It's been a learning curve these past 6 months!

I had to google!

I have a very small patch of a garden, from what I read quickly it wouldn't be too happy in a pot? I had some very standard SPs this year, which weren't overly successful I have to say but for a few pennies I'm not surprised, I'd love to try again next year though! But I am almost entirely limited to pots. nothing seems to thrive in our borders

Sweet Peas are on my wish list, as are veggies. I don't think i'll have too much to offer in return, but I will hopefully have some black velvet petunia seeds at some point in the future! I love them but understand they aren't to everyone's taste!

And the orange with the buds is seemingly called crown princess margereta

Ah I have my camera to hand t white flowers are philadelphus innocence and the purple blue rose is called Rosa Blue for You. It was so unusual in the flesh. Almost ultra violet.

Yarrow if you can wait till the evening I tool photos of the labels with the names of the plants. That's one of the things I really loved about the place all the plants have little signs with the Latin and common name. I love the pink rose which I distinctly remember being called a Shropshire lad. I loved the white dog rose looking plant they were huge like cherry blossom trees. I've forgotten the name but do have a photo of the tag.

It's been quite a while since I went to a big stately home, with gardens! What I loved about Spetchley park was how parts of it had been left to the wilderness, and the kitchen garden incorporated vegetables and fruit planted alongside beautiful flowers. Though I loved the pathways filled with roses and the Rose lawn, just like the Red Queen's from Alice in Wonderland.

I took some photos, I hope I can share them with you as I don't know what most of them are!
