Kent based, east facing. My garden is absolutely my passion. Obsessed with tall perennials! 🌸

Really pleased with the progress of this dogwood. She was a shrivelled mess when I got her about 4 years ago. I started it in a pot for the first year and I’ve had her in this well fed border for the last 3. Judging by the performance this year I think she’s almost ready to be transferred to a permanent position before she gets too big! I love this colour palette! 🤍💜💗💚 #dogwood #cornus #tree #foliage #border #lupin #foxglove #cream #pink #purple #colourpop #colourcombo #bestofmay

@dan5584 I sure do Dan. It's looking fab and purple 💜💜I can see my pink and purple ones from the lounge. They really stand out and, thankfully they're sturdy enough to stand up to this weather. I'm really looking forward to a better and sunny day tomorrow. I hope to get my last two plant deliveries, Sarah Raven's site said my Salvia was available mid May. Ok, we're past that now, so where is it I wonder. Been a long wait for my order from Gardening Express too! Shocking service 😳💜💜

I think they are all over run with orders, I ended up cancelling all mine and just waited till I could get to a gc. The only order I got was from t&m and it arrived dead 🤣🤣 here’s hoping for a sunny day!! My birthday Tuesday so I’m hoping for nice bbq weather 😍 @midnightgardener
