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

Paeonia 'Coral Charm'

Roots and all - do you follow them on here? Plant 2 inches below soil - October is the time and cut back foliage as it dies off - don’t need to feed them but won’t flower for a few years 👍🏻

I can't even do that, I have far too many plants as it is, I've got to have a cull and I'm really not looking forward to choosing what has to go 😱😱

Tbh Jane, I dug out all of the crocosmia Lucifer (having dug out half last year) in the front for this one and cleared lots of vinca for the other one. I hope I’ve given them enough room 🤞 @pelly

19 Jun 2018 • #notmygarden This stunning #peony was at #Larchcottage today. It didn’t seem to have any support and was looking fabulous. Now, do I have room for another? 🤔 #peony #peony-coralcharm

I only say it because I mean it. Your garden is totally different from mine, I don't have the beautiful setting that you do but I do try to make the best of what I have, that's what it's all about at the end of the day. I just need to win the lottery 😂😂
