Seasonal Planting

A selection of reliable plants I grow in my Essex garden to provide interest and wildlife appeal throughout the year. Most are easy to grow and hardy. The further North you are in the UK, Trachelospermum, nectarine, myrtle and bottlebrush may be more of a challenge!

It would be great to include a visitors section here. If you have plants in your garden that are looking good at the moment, take a digital photo and send them in!

Everyone loves flowers!
