Mummy fell in love with the leaves of this tree, an Acer Plat Drommondii, so naturally she bought it. Fritz is planting it near to the conservatory so that it can be seen and admired from there as well as when out in the garden. We shall be carefully watching it’s growth (both above and under the ground with the root system) and prunning it accordingly.
James is helping to plant out a box of red Bizzy-Lizzys as they bring a splash of colour to the various greens of the evergreen shrubs.
Mummy doesn’t have many annual plants now as over the last few years we have had a hose-pipe ban from as early as May due to the lack of rain here in Cheshire.
Sally helping water some of the Runner Bean plants that we have grown from seed.
They look good sturdy healthy plants so hopefully over the next two months they will bring in a good crop as we like to pick them when they are small and tender rather than buy them from the supermarkets which are left to grow to a bigger (and tougher) size to gain the maximum profit.
