It’s now the perfect time of the year to start thinking about planning our spring garden. Where do we start?
Well, we have to ask ourselves, ‘What do I want from my spring garden? Do I want different colours to what I already have? Have I got gaps that I need to fill? Do I want a challenge of growing new varieties? Well I am sure that whatever we need when Adrian and I start looking through the new Spalding autumn catalogue we are going to be spoilt for choice. Adrian has already started looking and is sitting with his pen poised and eager to start his ‘must have’ list.
Just slow down a bit Adrian let’s get the coffee on first…
Hosta ‘White Feather’
I can see why he is eager he’s got his catalogue open at a page where we are showing a new variety of hosta ‘White Feather’ (he does love his hostas).
Last week Adrian took me into Norfolk for the day to visit ‘The Old Vicarage’ which is quite a long way from Spalding – fantastic gardens and well worth a visit. Not only do we enjoy these jaunts, it’s always interesting to see how the professionals display their plants and shrubs and to see them growing in their ideal environment. It’s also interesting listening to other people’s comments on the various flowers.
We’ve spent so much time drooling over our Spalding Plant & Bulb catalogue I think we will have to leave it for tonight and spend another evening to continue our list!
Coffee and biscuit time Adrian?
