Not #tropicaltuesday in Devon today! This #gunnera in the steam is not loving the frost - but everything looked so beautiful 😍

Time to get my wellies on and jump in the stream to plant my new #gunnera - been on my wish list for so long! 🤗

I've not seen a small affordable one before (£8 from local NT garden) so snapped it up! @TheGardenWife

Result! You lucky thing. Unfortunately I don't have the room or conditions here for Gunnera so I will watch yours develop instead 😄👏👍

For about 10 months of the year I love the stream, for 2 months I'm on flood alert 💧💧💧💧💧 @TheGardenWife but hopefully the gunnera will make it worth it 😀
