Looks promising unlike today's weather. Typical as yesterday was nice but I didn't feel great and spent the day in bed, I'm better today but it's rather windy and wet.

It really is depressing isn’t it......Hydrangeas shouldn’t be long now although a bit of sun would help....😏

It looked beautiful, it was rather hot in the hospital. It would make a great greenhouse but infection control would have a dicky fit 🤣 @italydiva

I suspect a few flowers would cheer everyone up no end...that and pet visits. Infection control would be apoplectic though! 😂

My bare hydrangea and fuchsia bush are now looking a bit more glam. I think more lights are required though.

Not sure about this and its current position. The front of the house is south facing and the garden is really small. I'd like to keep it for sun lovers. I think I'll leave it maybe until the summer and see if its worth keeping there.

Climbing Hydrangeas like shade

comment

@jaynehynesburton yes I've got a baby that's earmarked for the north facing back garden. It's quite an old mature plant though, it must be happy. I'm torn I dont want shade tolerant plants in that area but its huge and would seem a pity to dig it out.

@jaynehynesburton that's good to know. I'll see how I feel about it next year. It's hard to make a decision when it's just bare branches.

@jaynehynesburton I'm going to try to not do too much in the first year and just try to learn wheres sunny and not so much. I say try because I have no patience 😁
