It would seem there is much to learn about this gardening malarky.
Frost is an absolute bugger!
I was utterly dismayed last week when I noticed my brand spanking new hydrangea had succumbed to frost, the poor thing was flumped over, wilted and looking incredibly sorry for it’s self. I replanted it in the greenhouse, tucked up nice and warm, hoping I could bring it back.
Thankfully my puppy eyes, pouty bottom lip and sniffles were enough for hubby to whisk me back to the garden centre to buy a new hydrangea, on the off chance that Bloomy doesn’t make it.
I introduce…BT, Bloomy Two, isn’t she gorgeous!
I’m in love with those pink petals!
Whilst pootling around the garden centre I came to the not so unexpected realisation that I need more garden, so many plants so little garden!
And tiny plant pots, I need tiny plant pots for tiny, perfectly formed blooms.
I also need an elegant pot for an Orchid, elegant flowers deserve elegant pots.
I’ve never used the word elegant so many times!
I also need Gerbera’s, my most favourite flower of all.
Other than these, which I just adore.
So, I need lots more garden, pots and flowers. But really most of all I need to start taking this gardening malarkey a little more seriously and not just dig a hole, whack a plant in it and hope for the best.
Whilst getting all giddy over BT, I managed to do a little gardening, planting out some bedding plants and bulbs, who knew a fruit bowl could be a planter?!
