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

I wish you could smell this. It is just by the front door and the #perfume wafts in every time the door is opened 💗 #rhododendron-tinkerbird #scented

It was you who recommended it Justin, and I love it. Thank you. Are you going to replace it? @justin

Have you just moved temporarily? Your garden was so lovely but I’m sure your next one will be too 👍 @justin

I moved to Cornwall last year for a new job and am currently renting until I find somewhere I want to buy. I still have my house in Surrey but it’s now rented out... I just hope the tenants are looking after the place and garden as I put a lot of effort into it. I really miss having my own garden but am thankful to be in Cornwall right now considering the circumstances 😘 @awomanonabike

I’ve enjoyed your photos but hadn’t realised that you had moved. I bet you miss your garden but I’m sure being in Cornwall is making up for it. I know where I would rather be 😊 Take care and enjoy the peace and quiet @justin

2 May 2019 • #Tinkerbird - I wonder how it got its name. This dwarf #rhododendron has the biggest flowers that are heavily scented. Another for #smell-o-vision

7 May 2018 • I hope everyone was able to enjoy a sun-filled weekend ☀️ This little beauty is filling the garden with scent. It may be a dwarf variety but its flowers are mahoosive 😃

Good morning Justin. Was it you that recommended this rhodie? If so thank you so much. It’s fabulous. I have it in a pot next to Loropetalum Chinense ‘Firedance’ and Heuchera Marmalade and love it @justin

Good morning Jacquline 👋🏼 yes it was and I’m very glad you’re happy with it. Mine has been the best ever this year with so many flowers and the scent has just been wonderful. Glad you’re enjoying the new addition

The flowers make up for the slightly weird looking buds 🤔 but we can’t all be perfect 😉😂 @justin

It’s a very worthy addition Jane 😃 It had never occurred to me before to look for dwarf varieties so I can grow them in pots. @pelly

I didn't even realise you could get dwarf ones until a few months ago, and since my garden isn't big enough for a full blown one these are ideal for me and I am delighted to find I'm able to have them Jacqueline 😍😍

This is a great dwarf one Laura. Should be fine in a pot, which is my plan as my soil is alkaline @columbiariver
