When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

17 Aug 2019 • I was thinking I didn’t really have much #white in the garden at the moment. How could I forget #hydrangea-annabelle 💚

I love hydrangea annabelle - mine are now turning pale. lime green. I like the way white shows up in the dusk when looking up the garden.

White is wonderful at dusk and I love Annabelle too. A gardener friend has planted it as a “hedge” for a client to hide his tractors. It looks amazing 💚 @arborescans

Thanks Val. The flowers are so huge they have flopped a bit in the wind and rain but I don’t care! It still looks fab 😃 @valjones-hughes

I love it. It is so reliable and very generous, both with its flowers and the way it gently spreads so you can easily remove pieces to make new plants 😊 @columbiariver

I understand. I've never met a finicky hydrangea. They are foundations in my garden too

Nooooooooo! 😱😱😱 Because of the drought? Or something else? You’ll have to take a bit of this when you come up in September 👍 @rachelbrooks

It was in too dry a spot last year and was forever struggling and flopping so I moved it and into a pot but I think by then it had given up all hope! 😭 I still have the pink one though ☺️ and that will be lovely, thank you 😘 I shall keep it in a pot from the start then!

Here you go Sam. Annabelle is 150cm tall & my unnamed phlox is 1m and no, the neighbours didn't spot me with my tape measure 😂 @icedance

Gorgeous 😍and well done for getting away with it with the neighbours 👍😂 how old is your Annabelle mines on its second year ?

awomanonabike

Thanks Sam. I think this must be its 3rd or 4th year. It came from a friend's garden & I've already taken a clump to put in another part of the garden. Only just realised I haven't put in any support for it yet... 🙊 💨 😢
