Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

Very colourful Barbara, I’ll try to find some colour today. I’m sure something must be in flower somewhere!

There's still a lot flowering that normally wouldn't be. I hope it doesn't affect their performance next year 🤔💜💜

The cuttings root quite quickly, Sharon, although I can’t remember exactly how long they take. 😢 This plant is now about four years old and it’s a good size 👍 @sharonhayden

My second lot of #hebe cuttings have taken! I thought my original success was down to beginner’s luck but maybe I’ve finally cracked this cuttings malarkey!!! #cuttings #newplants #newgrowth #mondaymotivation
