Summer past

Post by charliepridham » Mon May 21, 2018 7:33 am

A couple of years back we had a Photographer here doing a photo shoot for a magazine (can't remember which one) Just come across the disc of pictures he sent us and I thought a few summer shots might cheer things up!

I still regret having to get rid of this Bamboo

Just a flavour of the somewhat mish mash of styles going on here at mine!

Good to see HTUK back and running :)

What a beautiful and mature garden. Very impressive!
Most wanted list - Any Young Trachycarpus and/or fern.

Nice pictures Charlie! I particularly like the yellow bamboo and I hope to be adding one to the garden here next year or later this year.

BTW I look forward to seeing you again at the Kingston Bagpuize plant fair this Sunday. I’d like a climber for a semi-shade west facing fence, that would hopefully be evergreen and cover an area of 2m x 6m.

Well I will certainly be there (baring accidents on route!) I will put my thinking cap on for some suggestions plant wise.

Your garden looks great Charlie.

Whilst you say it is a "mish mash" of styles it blends well together :)

Well we like it that way obviously! but I can't help admiring those that go for a "Look" whether it be Japanese style or full blown exotic like Will Giles, but its a lot harder work than just sticking to what wants to grow. Here I am afraid Clematis and roses are allowed to clamber over palms and bamboos :oops: But I love the evergreen shapes of the palms all winter when they have been cleared and the Bamboo gives height quickly but doesn't keep going up like a tree would
