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

I never used to have much luck in the old garden with lupins. But they seem to be happy here, all sprouting away!😊 #newgrowth #winter #lupin

@dan5584 I can't grow them here on alkaline soil. They do best neutral to acid soil.

Evening all! My towering #perrenials are struggling a little with the wet weather, but still look gorgeous! Now I’m not a massive fan of #red flowers and only have a select few in my garden, but this one is divine! ❤️ #lupin #closeup #mygarden-dan5584 #colourpop #june #bestofjune

Same here Dan, but that's an absolute stunner. Do you have a name for it because it beats the hell out of my red one ❤🤔

Funny...I don’t really like red in my garden either (although it’s my favourite colour! 🙈 I know that makes no sense 🤷🏻‍♀️😆)

It’s Andys favourite colour, so if I ever manage to get him to hit the gc with me he always picks something red 🙄 😘 @rachelbrooks
