Hellebores are a worthy investment

Hellebores are perennial, generally trouble-free and low-maintenance. Every winter, they will reliably come up to cheer you up in what could be the bleakest or coldest winter days.

To bring out the best in hellebores, I personally would plant them somewhere sunny, warm but protected. South facing or west facing would not do them much harm. Moist, but well drained soil enables hellebores to do well.

Water them well in dry seasons and top up with bonemeal. Before flowering, remove all the big leaves so that sunshine can access the crown. This will help to produce more flowers as well as prevent a virus attacking the plant.

Useful facts to remember!

How my Dicentra, Iris, cistus, osteospermum and poppies stir after the great slumber…

Flowers in bloom

How my plants stir to life…
and Welsh poppies steal the show!

The weather in April was diabolical. It was so cold and I had so many trays of seedlings that I felt totally overwhelmed. As my conservatory had been very hot, the seedlings were smothered with aphids, wilting as well as showing dark-green algae. Not a pretty sight.

Welsh poppies – vibrancy par excellence..

For the first time, both my orange and yellow poppies are BOTH in bloom. One early morning, I was studiously watering my garden and it as early 6 in the morning. At the corner of my eyes, I caught a glimpse of yellow and saw this.

I have a small amount of YELLOW poppies seeds for sale. Should you be interested, please email me

Dicentra

Suddenly, My dainty dicentra caught me by surprise!

I have had this dicentra for a long time. It comes up and says hello every single year. Dainty and the pink is just enchanting!

Dicentra is perennial and it is a lovely constance in my garden. It does not require much maintenance and its foliage is distinctively unique, as you can see!

Every spring, you will be greeted by these strings of pearly delights.

Osteospermum

If you live in Essex, like me, it is definitely worth your while investing in an osteospermum. It can withstand drought and love heat. Low maintenance and yet every year it would display its beautiful bloom in earnest! What is there not to love!?

Unknown flower

Have no idea the name of this flower (or weed). It has a massive root network and whilst it is beautiful when it flowers, it turns to straw-like mess …

Cistus

Cistus has always had a special place in my heart. The little dainty pristine white colour is just out of this world. This year I have 3 plants smothered with pearly whites all screaming for attention!

Cistus × purpureus

Another favorite of mine! I have it on the west-facing front lawn where it is baked. This year saw an abundance of flowers. What a nice way to come home to!
