Although our garden is still covered in snow we’re getting excited about the upcoming gardening year. Our new Buddleias arrived today (Nanho Blue and Pink Delight), along with a Berberis Harlequin. We got engaged in the stunning garden at Augill Castle last Summer, amongst the lavender & buddlieas with bees & butterflies all around – it was a beautiful place and we’re keen to add some to our garden as a little reminder.
I noticed this week that our blueberry bush is starting to bud. We planted it last year but saw no real action on it so fingers crossed it bears fruit this time around.
Talking of fruit, there was a brilliant programme on BBC2 the other night, The Great British Garden Revival and the subject was soft fruit – absolutely fascinating and I’m now keen to get a Chilean Guava – the fruit sounds amazing, and it can be grown in a pot too – bonus!
