Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

My love of flower arranging has led me to plant every possible foliage plant in my garden. This does not mean that the plants do not flower or add colour to the garden but they have the additional benefit of decent foliage. Think of brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ with good ground covering silvered leaves and very pretty blue flowers or rodgersia with leaves like a horsechestnut and spires of pink or white. At this time of year I have been picking skimmias. The green budded ‘Kew Green’ and the red budded rubella. Combine these with some of the enormous range of pittosporum now available and you have a really colourful display. My favourite pittosporum is ‘Warnham Gold’ a shrub that I have picked bits off since it was tiny and it has still managed to grow and glows in the garden. The holly bushes I am picking have taken a long time to grow to a decent size but once started they romp away. If you want berries on your holly check its sex. ‘Golden King’ is female and ‘Silver Queen’ is male, very confusing! You need both sexes to have berries. Perhaps the neighbours have the ones you need. The euonymus like ‘Silver Queen’ and a similar gold one are also slow to get going but eventually turn into climbers and give you lots to pick. I do not have many conifers but a gold one, a blue one and yew give me all I need. ...

Wildlife Support & Conservation

The Villager

Ceramics and Art Exhibition: Rachel Hudson, a local wildlife artist, and I, exhibited our art and ceramics in Blackberry Lane, in late December. Unfortunately it was arranged at very short notice as November was an extremely busy month, so very little time to promote the event or distribute flyers, but attendance was good and we raised seventy pounds which will be used to help cover costs. We are presently self-funded, so many thanks to residents who came along and to several people who made a donation! ...
