I was a garden lover from my early days. When I moved to the United Kingdom I lived in Liverpool and Peterborough I had smaller gardens spent less time in the garden due to busy on-call rotas.
Finally, when I moved to London I was very fortunate to have a house with a big garden. This was London living close to nature one which I wanted. I joined the RHS ( Royal horticultural society )
where I learned my gardening skills. The lockdown period encouraged me to spend more time in my garden and I was able to improve my garden to a great extent. Seeing my garden from indoors
in early summer glory is uplifting and inspiring. I have attached a few photos of some interesting and rare plants from my garden.
Penstemon Maurice Gibb is a hardy perennial plant, flower from May for six months comes in several beautiful colours. Stunning trumpet-shaped flowers held on strong stems.
Angiozanthos is a unique tall stem-like Kangaroo paw each one smothered with highly unusual flower heads. This one comes in different colours.
Fuchsia with their real elegance and astonishing beauty is at the top of all gardens comes in different colours. There are about six different colours.
Collection of Lupin, Iris and Acer. The attractive Acer is purple in early growth and changes colour with maturity, also called Mystic jewel. Ruffled bloom and fuzzy bearded Iris appear in late spring
No garden is complete without a collection of Roses. Rose renaissance is a traditional romantic rose with old fashioned fragrance. The modern bouquet roses are easy to grow and have an intense fragrance. Capricia dark red bloom rose is stunning catches everyone eye who see them
