Bit of fun… what plants were in fashion when you grew up, or starting gardening and why have you kept some of these.
Regimented bedding, big dahlias, and conifers were big in the 70s…. The dahlias are coming back now.
Hanging baskets in the 90s.
Also Rose Ena Harkness still a favourite of mine. Peace Rose grown by Harry Wheatcroft and of course R Fragrant Cloud found in ever garden and purchased from Woolworths.
'Tis sweet to visit the still wood,where springs. The first flower of the plain. Longfellow.
I do actually have a standard pink rose Lucky in my front lawn come to think of it .
for the fag ends of the aristocracy.
Other plants come and go, as with everything else. Some do well and some don't, as folk experiment along the way
You still see loads of conifers chopped @Plantminded , often badly, because they've been planted in the wrong place, or not correctly maintained
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
