Capel manor show June 2014

30 Jun

Last Sunday in June has been a regular show date for many years now, but unfortunately the show seems to be getting smaller. Venue the Capel manor gardens has got very broken up and it felt like the show was all over the place. Just 2 clubs on show and one of those is not a club but a small but very talented and dedicated group of individuals. All said good day and a good to catch up with old friends and meet some new collectors.

Today in the garden 20/05/14

20 May

The anticipation on some trees is huge, you nurture all winter waiting for a display, then

Yep it’s in flower, tiny but if the male plant has done its job then we will have the fruit which it’s really grown for. The oriental bittersweet is not seen that much outside Japan but it’s well worth seeking out.
Other trees are very much now.

I love the single flower with the red stripe, I have marked this branch so when after flowering and I am cutting back I don’t prune it out.

This tiny twig of a Hawthorne was not suppose to exist as I did a air layer and the branch was below the layer a clump of moss was on it and it rooted.

Pyracantha not got much this year.
Not a good picture but then it’s only a cutting but it has two super flowers.

It’s not all about flowers with anticipation we always hope out pines grow well and this black pine has huge candles.

To finish a couple of accents.
