Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We took a break from NGS openings in 2021/22 but we’ll be back in 2023!

Jack is slowly fading from the silver and green colours of summer to the yellow and green tints of autumn. #foliagefriday #brunnera #brunnera-jackfrost #perennial #autumniscoming #heartshapedleaves 💚

This leaf is particularly large, Jane. The smaller ones still appear to be keeping their colour! @pelly 🤷🏼‍♀️

Mainly shade lovers, Sarah, although this one does get quite a bit of sun. 👍 @sieveheadsarah

I love welcoming groups to the garden and it’s always interesting to hear their comments, but I was really surprised that the most talked about plant this morning was good old Jack Frost. He’s today’s Star Plant! #brunnera #brunnerajackfrost #ngsgarden #mygardentoday 03/07/2019

Where is your plant growing, Linda? They prefer a shady position as too much sun can dry them out and this will cause the leaves to go brown. I hope this helps @lindamcmillan

I love Jack Frost! It looks good from the time it emerges in spring until it dies back in late autumn. The pretty blue forget-me-not type flowers are a bonus and in my garden the slugs and snails won’t touch it! #brunnera #brunnerajackfrost #plant-and-forget #silverleaves #blueflowers #mygardentoday 06/06/2019

The leaves are still small and the flowers are tiny but there are definitely #signsofspring here! I love the furry leaves on the emerging #brunnera and the shape of the #leaves #heartshaped #greenandsilver #blueflowers #mygardentoday 20/03/2018
