My passion in life is gardening and specifically growing flowers from seed

Month: June, 2019

Delphiniums

These must be one of the highlights of my garden currently and are in the replacement bed (by the front door) of the original Wendy’s wonderland garden. The name of this blog. Although the blog actually refers to the whole garden. I do have a white delphinium elsewhere and would definitely like more. As long as I don’t let the slugs at them when they first appear all is good and they need staking when tall.

Wordless Wednesday – lilies

June 2019 in my garden

I have just returned home from a week away and my garden has literally taken off while I’ve been gone. So many new things flowering and even my seeds in the greenhouse have come on so well. Must be all that rain we’ve had. I’ve been able to spend a little time tidying up and planting some things out a bit late but the weather was poor before I left! Here’s what’s currently flowering in my garden

Wordless Wednesday- Iris

First roses of the season

I was feeling quite left out seeing lots of pictures online of roses flowering but tonight I’ve noticed ours are too! Hoorah. The first is called ‘hot chocolate’ and is relatively new with a gorgeous scent, not of chocolate I have to say. Good job as I’d want to eat it! But I really don’t see the point of roses without scent!

This last one is also relatively new and called Nostalgia. Again with a lovely scent and it’s not quite out yet but has lots of lovely new growth
