I’ve been taking flowers to work again for weeks now but I thought I’d share this one from last week as it was a bit different.
Firstly, I’d picked Plumbago for the first time, and actually it lasted very well. This was joined by Scabious ‘Fata Morgana’. I grew this from seed for the first time last year and planted it in the Bronze Bed expecting it to be quite peachy. As it is it’s rarely more than cream which was disappointing in the bed,
but worked with the Sweet Pea Lathyrus ‘Jilly’
To these I added Salvia horminum ‘White Swan’. I was prompted to grow these after the success of S. horminum ‘Oxford Blue’ last year. I love the green veining which makes it looks so fresh. However, the truth is these blooms were picked directly from the seed tray where they were still languishing, and when I returned home last Thursday they were looking a bit peaky and I still haven’t planted them out in the ground! I’ve given them a good soak this evening and hopefully they’ll last the week and I can dream up somewhere to plant them next weekend…
