People in glass houses…

I’ve always wanted my own greenhouse, but because of my shady back garden, this has never been a viable option.

My lovely neighbours Gladys and Gary have not used their greenhouse for a while and have kindly allowed me to use theirs.

Two weeks down the line, and the greenhouse is almost half full.

Let the propagation begin…


Sanguisorba ‘Red Thunder’

This beautiful Sanguisorba ‘Red Thunder’ was given to me by a garden designer showing at the Hampton Court Palace flower show last year. I divided it into four plants early this year which are now growing away in my front garden and looking amazing.

I’ve got it growing alongside Persicaria ‘Red Dragon’, Heuchera ‘Obsidian’ and Miscanthus ‘Flamingo’.
