Peonies from the Cutting Garden

It’s peony season! If you have a spare spot in your garden or on your patio, plant a peony you’ll never regret it. They are dead easy to grow, pop them in full sun or partial shade and then just leave them alone and they get bigger every year. If they are in pots make […]

A little pot of Spring

My parents dropped over an early birthday present yesterday, in the form of two sweet little pots planted up for spring. They are so cute and full of spring bulbs and in my favourite colours. I love them! Thanks Mum & Dad xxxx
