Thought I would share some new plantings in the garden that are looking great – alongside some old favourites.

There are several Choisya in the gardens and they are full of flowers at the moment.

The Cistus are coming out on sunny days. I love their papery leaves.

This is a new plant in the shrubbery called Coronilla which apparently flowers from November through til May!

THis is a Tellima that we have grown from seed given to us from Bristol Botanic gardens.

A few people have questioned our taste in colour when they see the Victorian Terrace but I absolutely LOVE it- mind you my mum often said to me as a child that I must have got dressed in the dark because of the way I put colour together!

And all around the formal gardens is a beautiful scent of Wisteria. This one is flowering at my friends house- lets hope todays wind doesn’t ruin it!
