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'

One of the upsides to not having been able to get out in the garden as much this year…There have never been so many flowers on this #hydrangea-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 👍🏼

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! 🌧🌧
