going to make a garden for my Mother in law

she is a wonderful lady that really deserves a break, so follow this blog for ideas updates and plants,
have had some fantastic ideas and have robbed my garden and my daughters have also been to morrisons and B&Q ( a friend txt me to say that they had things reduce ) got a few bargains

                                  I have bought 2 of these sets from morrisons to start her off

A few marigold and something else that for the life of me i cant remember the name of !!! 

This one is a lie ! as in mine doesnt look like this yet but hopefully it will when it grows up

                                                         Sweet peas at mam's request

  I have divided up this lovely Pieris japonica 'Little Heath' just hope it takes as well as it has in the past, the shape is a little messy yet but i can sort that out once it takes

 This is an Azalea i have robbed back from from me daughter i must say it is looking less healthy than when it went it to hers, maybe it doesnt approve of my grandsons footie skills !!
 These two are new Pyracantha climbers one goes 12' the other 6' I thought they'd look good againt house wall and side fence

This little boy has dreams of being a standard Photinia "little Red Robin"

This I have also divided up this euonymus that has gone a tad wild in the daughters so time to go on to the next home 

Another new one ( damn i am going to be broke )This is a 'Ribes sanguineum'
have been told it stinks so shall place this furthest from the house

Answers on a post card please for the life of me I have no idea ! and i have had it for 10 plus years


couldnt resist this Hardy

Or this one

lillie 3 Red, 3Yellow and 3 orange

3 trays of Chrysanthemum all reduced from £5:00 down to £2:00 this one is yellow with red tips

Lupins on sale for £2:98 down to 75p so got 4 of them 1 white , 1 pink and 2 lilac

also a miniture Hydrangea

This Nemesia was also reduced down to £2:00 from £5:00

and another 2 trays of  Chrysanthemum one in a pink red and the other in claret red.

Mam says that she has some spring bulbs in with the grass so i shall have fun looking for them !

My daughter has also bought some Roses and pots to put them in Happy days!!!!
 at least when we go down to hers on her birthday we shall be able to give her a bit of a taste of whats to come. i think i now need to add some contrast items what do you think ?
