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!

I have tried (and failed!) so many times to grow penstemon but I seem to have found the perfect place for this one. It’s by the edge of the path in very poor soil but it’s thriving! #penstemon #pink #perennial #nevergiveup 💚

@Jacaranda Love this one the colours inside are glorious. Funny things Penstamon they either grow like weeds or not at all. This one is very happy.

@KOutdoors They definitely don’t like heavy clay, Karen, but this little spot seems perfect 🤞

In the past I’ve tried, unsuccessfully, to grow #penstemon but I’m giving them another go this year. I really hope they’ll like growing amongst the roses as I love the colour of these ones 💕 If at first you don’t succeed #trytryagain #mygardentoday 07/07/2019

That's a lovely colour too fingers crossed once they get established there will be no stopping them easy to do cuttings if you think you might loose them ❤💕❤

I’ve not tried cuttings before, Keely. When do you do them? @Keely 🤔

You can do them now if you can get a side shoot that's not flowering, they take pretty well this time of year bit of grit n compost n don't put in full sun should do the job 🙆😊
