If you are like me and forget to water your houseplants, a solution to this would be to use a watering globe from Plantpal. If you plan to go away this Christmas these are the ideal plan. They will keep your plant hydrated for up to 2 weeks giving you a piece of mind. If you are looking for a Christmas gift for a plant lover these make pretty gifts.
Plantpal watering globes come in a 3 pack of blue, green and orange. They are fairly large in size but hold enough water for a couple of weeks.
Welcome back to 7 Hints and Tips Thursday. It’s been a while since I wrote one of these posts and today I have a really useful one for you. It’s on how you go about choosing the correct greenhouse for you.
As you know I love gardening and I have been thinking about greenhouses for a while. I have always loved to have one to grow all sorts of vegetables in it. Like Tomatoes and beans.
At the weekend I had a little walk around my garden and the parents garden. It is beautiful to just take in all the new growth and flowers that are starting to come out. I love this time of year, when the sun is getting warmer and everything just grows!
Last year my friend moved house and gave me some cuttings of her plants. These gorgeous large daisies plants have really taken hold and now producing these stunning flowers.
This enormous broom like bush is a couple of years old now and is full of flowers. The smell is amazing when you get closer to it.
A close up of the flower petals – not bad for my iphone camera!
This is a white version of the pink bush. I think its much more elegant. It’s a year younger than the pink bush.
These lovely yellow flowers are in my parents garden and I am not sure what type of flower they are. If anyone knows please enlighten me!
In amongst the weeds is this perfect pink little flower, I thought it deserved a photo!
I hope you enjoyed my mini tour of the gardens.
Are you out enjoying the Spring growth in your garden?
What types of flowers and plants do you plan to grow?
I just love the purple colour of these flowers in my dad’s garden.
Over the past few weeks we can all agree that the weather has been not quite ‘Summer’ weather. We have had a few great days of sunshine here and there, but when it has rained, well it has almost been like the heavens opened and flooded us all.
This mixture of warm and wet weather conditions has been perfect for gardens. As I walk around my parents garden and also my own I can see how all the plants look brighter, full of life – nature at it’s very best.
This photo of the perfect bee accompanied by the lovely ladybird, is one of the few shots captured around the garden. I feel there is something very special about this picture.
All of the following pictures are taken with just a camera phone. Some of which can be very good these days for capturing those precious moments.
This gorgeous pink rose is one of my favourite colours. The petals are very pretty and perfectly formed.
One the slope part of my back garden, this type of reed plant has started to grow all by itself. It fits in perfectly with my other shrubs so I have left it where it is and weeded around it. The type of soil in my garden is clay so its always wet most of the time, especially with our damp climate in Cornwall. I’m assuming that these conditions are perfect for this type of reed, hence it growing very fast!
This gorgeous yellow flower completely brightens up the garden – reminds me of the sun.
I hope you have enjoyed my little tour of the gardens, you can keep up to date with future posts by following me on Facebook Twitter
