Candelabra Primrose, Primula Beesiana. I have wanted to grow these for some years but haven't really a damp site for them so we will see how we get on.
These two photos should not be shown they were taken a little late in the evening towards the light but I just wanted to illustrate how nice that from the bench I am sitting on after planting the purple acer by the new little bed I noticed how nice it looked with the Prunus Persica tree also being similar in colour. I then decide to put a pot another cherry in the right hand corner and they balance out beautifully. This potted cherry was a sucker that had run under someone's fence into the common I walk the dog in. One day realising it would get chopped by the cutter I went and dug several out it was hard work but I potted them out and now have two little trees for free. Now please don't look down too much because I know I need to have a good tidy and again close investigation shows more ground elder. These beds have not been weeded in several years apart from the odd very obvious weeds that I could reach to pull without too much effort.
These next three photos are variegated hosta names unknown that I have split and divided over many years. They look so lovely in their old wash tubs along the back terrace. I see the slugs have already had a meal though.
