Roses winter 2015

Presenting my new garden space! We have moved the chickens behind the shed and removed their old coop. 

Doesn't look like much now, but just wait and see...

Planning too many roses (however do you cut down the wish list?!) I have 14 noted for this space, plus lots of salvias, agastache, nepeta and buddleia (mostly small varieties), two dwarf fruit trees (apples? Pears?) and an inbuilt chair for sitting and thinking (preferably with a notepad, pencil, and bottle of cider). The space is about 4m x 4m square. Seems tiny, but I am a mistress at squeezing lots of plants in, and it's still bigger than done people's courtyards.

Geraniums and pelargoniums

This week's obsession: pinching bits of geraniums (or are they pelargoniums?!) from verges to propagate.
