I know, I know. You are probably horribly bored of seeing Marion Jarvies garden over and over and over again. But I can’t help it, I love it. She is one of my plant gurus. Every time I visit I see something else I just have to have, darn it all. And this is one garden that I go out of my way to see every time I return from Barbados.
This time I was paying a lot of attention to shrubs and conifers in her garden, last year it was the hellebores.
Not that I didn’t take a huge number of photos of them, but I was astonished by how much colour diversity there was in the woody plant material.
Sorry, I did not get the names of the conifers. It was raining and we thought we would have to cancel the course so I ran around getting as many photos as possible. We did not have to cancel, but did cut it short so I am glad I did.
A couple of deciduous shrubs flowering,
Daphne mezereum ‘Marion Jarvie’, which I purchased last year,
and a cornus mas.
And her urn, gorgeous.
I soooo miss planting up seasonal urns, I even taught a few workshops on it when I worked at East of Eliza, one of my favourite jobs when I worked there.
