Trip to local garden centre


I have spent the last few days cleaning my patios and the drive! Today I have had a rest and a visit to the local garden centre.
I purchased a few plants for the borders but my Favourite buy is called Exochorda Racemoser “Niagara” . It was a Bargain at £4

This is photo of it

Plus a few of my plants in flower

wow that is a bargain at £4. I have germinated seed from one in the village but it will be a while before it is ready to flower.

that camellia is gorgeous.

Lovely buy, Marjorie. Haven’t heard of this one before. Looking healthy with some buds on too. You must post it in flower.
Camellia is a beauty! Or are there two?
Blossoms coming out nicely in the bottom pic.
Think you’ve earned a good rest, you’ve been quite busy.

A wonderful collection there - they all look very healthy. Well done on the patio cleaning. It's a job that always seems to 'slip' here. Neither of us can ever work up the enthusiasm to get on with it!

Thank you all of for your kind comments.
Kate you are right there two different camellias,the first one is Donation but I can’t remember the other ones name. They were bought many years ago in Cornwall.
When my new shrub flowers I will put a photo on.

This year I didn’t use my Kurcher to clean my patios instead I used a liquid which I put on with a watering can, left it for a couple of hours then rinsed it off. It was very successful and easy to do.

Beautiful photos Marjorie.

Your camellias look gorgeous and SO healthy and your new plant looks truly lovely. What a good choice.

Look forward to seeing, I did think there were two as one is a deepe pink! Beautiful!

Your shrubs are amazing Marjorie! I love the Exchorda! I had the "Bride" when we lived in Willow Cottage and bought another after we lefy there, but didn't come on very well.
