mini hanging basket

Dinosaur topiary

June 26th. Dinosaur topiary seen at the hta National Plant Show today. Do You Think He Saw Us!

Rosa Mundi

June 24th. Looking like a raspberry ripple ice cream Rosa Mundi is a loverly old favorite, pity the blooms are so short lived.

Shadowdancer Alice and Betty

June 21st. Alice and Betty Shadowdancers compact and upright fuchsias.

Shadowdancer Peggy

June 20th. This is Shadowdancer Peggy one of the Shadowdancer range of fuchsias we are growing this year. One of the fuchsia catalogues describes Peggy as having light pink sepals with dayglow-pink corollas tinted neon-orange, pretty accurate description! Topiary Garden is keeping a shadowdancer growing diary which can be viewed here.

Flower Ball

June 19th. We received an email from a gardener asking for an alternative way to plant up a vigorous trailing fuchsia other than using a hanging basket. It's probably a bit late in the season - but with plenty of TLC and crossed fingers we thought we would try planting fuchsia Pink Marshmallow with one of our Flower Balls. Our Flower Ball frames are available here.

Hanging basket with fuchsia Pink Galore

June 16th. Planting up hanging baskets this morning. This one has fuchsia Pink Galore and trailing lobelia.
