Plants

These are just a few of the plants and flowers that I have grown in my garden or seen whilst out and about over the last year or so. You can see a larger version of each image and my comments by clicking on the photo.

​Spring

Nothing compares to a fresh sunny spring morning when the warmth of the sun first hits your face and your garden emerges from its winter slumber!

Summer

So much to enjoy in the garden as the garden really warms up. And with the summer season now lasting for so long, many flowers now flower well into the autumn.

Autumn

‘Is it still summer?’ I have never known it so mild! It’s always a bit warmer than the rest of the UK here in London, but with temperatures regularly in the high teens, the garden didn’t know if it was coming or going! The autumn colours were spectacular and a trip to RHS Wisley in Surrey for the Apple Festival was a great way to enjoy the autumn season.

Winter

There is so much to enjoy in the garden during the winter months. Here are just a few of my favourite winter delights.

Helleborus Niger

Hellebores are wonderful plants for winter colour and interest. I have them planted in between my smaller rhododendrons in semi-shade. There are now lots of exciting shades in pink and purple available at garden centres and from specialist nurseries. I intend to plant more of them for amazing colour next winter.
