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

22 Apr 2019 • If you have a shady corner that needs brightening up you can’t get better than #mahonia-aquifolium The flowers are bright #yellow and it will grow quite happily in #fullshade This one gets no direct light at all, not even dappled #shade 💛💚💛

Gorgeous pic. I love the little blooms, but I just can’t seem to like the foliage! 😏

Hmmm...I try to like them, I really do...I think I need to accept they’re just not my kinda plant. (And then I feel guilty cause it’s not their fault! 🤣)

And the smell of honey? Does that not even do it for you? 🤷‍♀️😂 @rachelbrooks

Keep your fingers crossed Keely. Hopefully it will regrow. My garden is also littered with leaves torn from a laurel. It really was vicious... @Keely

I have so many plant with leaves completely burned from the wind. It was far worse for the garden than the frost and snow. Watching and hoping😒

I don’t remember ever noticing so much damage from a cold wind, as opposed to just cold and wet. I hope they all recover Val @valjones-hughes

I'd love a wall full of those! Not sure how things will turn out once they grow on a bit, but nature usually finds a way😊

I think nature has a way of pulling walls down 😂. They are coming from a mahonia on the other side of the wall, but it looks OK at the moment... @columbiariver @emve

Still, I'd be extatic if my Mahonia self seeds one day in the future! I'd probably move them, though. Even if I do think they look good where they are right now...
