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.

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

Sweet William

Another post in my series of firsts. My sweet William, all grown from seed and I keep sowing more as I thought they were biennials but they keep flowering every year so don’t need replacing. 2 different types. I prefer the first ones

Busy, busy, busy!

Well we were certainly lucky with the lovely sunny weather on Friday for the day out at Chatsworth flower show. It’s not been as nice since! However, there was some dry weather on Saturday and I managed to get 2 trays of seedlings in the garden. 1st picture cosmos and 2nd picture zinnia which some pest has been eating in the greenhouse. I don’t know who or how. I put a line of slug pellets in front of the door on the outside and have been collecting dead slugs ever since. 



I think I could do a post daily at the moment as there is something new flowering daily but that would probably be too much for you my lovely readers. Here’s a few things flowering right now in my garden. The pale coloured foxglove is so pretty and I don’t think I planted it myself, think it’s self sowen.
