Always loved gardening. Got my own West London garden in '13 which was just a patch of grass. Really enjoying turning it into a place I love to be.

Myrtus communis

VERY late flowering this year. We usually have berries on it by October!

There’s a tradition of royal brides having myrtle in the wedding bouquet. This was bought at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight where, I’m told, it comes from to be included in the bridal bunch! #RoyalWedding
