Thank you for the pictures Scotcat, they really brightened my day. More please
..I notice you have this lovely Camellia 'Spring Festival'... such a good choice, I absolutely love it... here it is in a pot in my garden taken a few years ago, as I found it outgrew it after 3 years or so and have planted it in the garden... it's an upright grower, very slim in early years, like a thin conifer and takes up little space. A profuse flowerer too with gorgeous young mahogany foliage... as it ages it becomes more bushy and develops a triangular look but still compact enough...
There is a mature plant growing in Agatha Christie's old garden in Devon, at Greenway House along the river Dart.... that's where I first saw it...surrounded by bulbs and suchlike...
yes i know what you mean , buying new plants always brings a smile to my face, my friend and i go to the local garden centre every fortnight and the first stop is always the coffe shop for a cream tea, discuss what we need lol, and then some serious shopping. Its my birthday wednesday and ive ask for garden vouchers, so i will be skipping to the till next week. Lovely pot but looks expensive ????
Haooy birthday on wed Kim have a nice day and tell us about you rshopping tripJust away to volunteer in the garden project at Glamis.
