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

Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight'

Ordinarily I'm not known for my patience Jacqueline 😁 but where they're earmarked for is still grass and will need quite a bit of prep first. Plus I've already put a frightening number of plants in this year 🙈

Mine didn’t do well this year...had just started flowering when the heatwave hit. Dried it out terribly so I’ll enjoy yours instead if that’s ok? ☺️

9 Aug 18 • This has done well despite the drought. Occasional grey water and it has thanked me with a wonderful display 💚 I only moved it last autumn from a shady, free-draining part of the garden where it was really struggling...

😂😂 This is fairly shady in the morning as it’s got some tall plants behind it. It’s obviously much happier. I think where it was before was too free draining too @Jasonsparkes1

Me too Rachel but it wasn't very happy where it was before. Not moist (I know, I know, wettest county in England!) or rich enough soil I think, so hope it will be happier here 🤞🏻 @rachelbrooks

Ah! I must admit I do have to keep mine well watered! Fingers crossed it'll flourish now then 👍🏼

I hope so too. This one is on my list but I've got to find a space for it. 😀😀😀

It was on the bit I call the bank, which is basically made of builders rubble 🤔 so very free draining and definitely not rich soil 😂 @rachelbrooks

With thanks to @Jasonsparkes1 I have a new hydrangea. Hopefully it will be happy in a spot that was just a big too shady for the irises and dierama to flower

I think it will. It will certainly be damp enough! 🌧🌧
