Its bright, it’s garish, it’s in your face, its Geum Fire Storm. Performance in our garden There was a time when subtlety was the order of the day. If that’s your style then the Geum Fire Storm will not be to your taste. I love it in our Fife garden, mind you we may well have gone a […]

It looks like Jack Frost, closer inspection of Brunnera Macrophylla Sea Heart side by side may reveal subtle differences. Performance in our Fife garden In late March last year, I planted three of these  Brunnera Macrophylla Sea Heart. Being North East facing the back garden seemed the best area for this woodlander. Early April the flowers started […]

Magnolia Stellata I have patiently waited almost a half century to see a Magnolia blooming in our garden. In our garden In March of 1969, we were given the keys to a council house in Aberdeen. (a time when local authority housing was not frowned upon) I mention this because it is indeed almost fifty years […]

The third week of March and the Snowdrops hung on whilst the Crocus defied the Winter conditions to herald the beginning of Spring Spring in Fife Well, lookee here, things perked up and the Crocus Vernus was looking great in the courtyard.  One fine day in late March the Crocus were smothered in bees feasting on the […]

Laurus Nobilis Standard Bay Tree, tender? Prompted to feature the Bay tree after watching Monty Don on Gardeners World last week The leaves on Monty Don’s Bay trees in his Herefordshire garden had turned completely brown due to the very severe frost.

The four gardens which we have had since 1969 have all had Astrantias. Astrantia Roma is up there with the best of them. Performance in our garden Astrantia Roma bloomed in our back garden from late May until Autumn’s end. The bees like it, the butterflies like it and I am told slugs hate it, how […]

Viburnum Tinus Eve Price is a true Winter bloomer which carries on flowering into the Spring. Performance in our Fife garden Planted in a container in May of 2017, this rather mature specimen of Eve price settled in nicely in the courtyard area of our garden and never showed any objection to being planted in […]

Award winning Aberdeen garden I don’t really like the title which I have used for this post. Makes me sound full of myself, I can assure you nothing could be further from the truth. Well, it’s not like I am bigging myself up, but I am sure as hell singing the praises of what mother nature, […]

Persicaria affinis darjeeling red. Finally, I have started to use the new name for (Polygonum) It’s not exactly a plant that would excite enthusiasts. Fortunately, it doesn’t take much to tickle my fancy, and in any case its common and popular because its such a great garden plant. Performance in our Fife garden (Persicaria affinis darjeeling) red, […]

SEO Drudgery, there you go, I have just started the post and repeated the title because SEO says its something I have to do. On top of that, I have already broken a rule by using more than twenty words in the first sentence.  View from our back window. (zoomed in) The turbines give a clue as […]
