Time for a update. Been here for 5 years now so the garden is no longer brand new. It’s still windy, it’s still stony and I still have so many plans.

Iris 'Katharine Hodgkin' syn. Iris reticulata 'Katharine Hodgkin'

When the wish list becomes a reality. I think #irisreticulatakatharinehogdkin might be joined by more varieties next year #iris

Aren’t they wonderful and so easy to grow. I’d recommend www.pottertons.co.uk for a great selection and very personal service

That's how it starts 😆😆😆 I bought one variety 3/4 years ago and now I have about 6 varieties and already thinking which ones to get for next spring 😂😂

Good prices! A bit more expensive than Wilko 😉 but I wouldn't mind paying a fiver for some more unusual varieties. @awomanonabike

It looks as though we’re in for a grim Sunday weather-wise! Still I can’t complain after my week in the sun. Glad I got to check the garden when I arrived home yesterday. First year of growing these, inspired again by GardenTags! So pleased that I have. More varieties next year #irisreticulata #iriskatharinehodgkin

They look wonderful. I’ve been inspired by GardenTags to grow Iris Reticulata too. So, so pretty, though I’ve only grown them in pots so far. I did plant last year’s but they haven’t reappeared...

I’ll keep my fingers crossed Jacqui @awomanonabike it can be a bit tricky, so many critters out there who think bulbs are for their benefit. Who can blame them really 😉
