Well, after being back in my thermals for last week’s Garden Bargains show, I am relieved to hear that the sun is making a come-back in time for the bank holiday…Yaaaay!!!
I must say though the rain has been wonderful for the new editions in my garden 🙂 My 100 treated Freesia Bulbs are popping out gorgeous green shoots and my 8 rose plants are positively thriving!Earlier this month whilst presenting a Garden Bargains show with Angela, I was transported back to my holiday in Greece with a fragrant Lilac plant we had on the show. The fragrance was amazing and I just had to order one for outside my back door so I will always be able to catch a whiff of that gorgeous blossom. I couldn’t believe the price and how securely the packaging was when it arrived.
On the show were also one of my favorite fruits, blueberries! The blueberry collection – pack of3 varieties were our ‘Edible of the month’. I absolutely love them and like to include them in my ‘power juices’ that I whiz up with my Nutribullet. They are packed with fibre, potassium, folate, vitamin C and B6 which all support your health. I just had to get some for my garden, I’ve never made blueberry muffins before, it’s the treat I like when I’m travelling on trains from London to Peterborough, once these grow, I’ll definitely be giving it a go!
I also popped the twin pack 40L handy premium professional compost into my basket, an absolute must for all around my garden and the fact I didn’t have to lug it into the back of my car is great, I can save my strength for fun in my garden with my family instead.
Don’t miss Hayley and Angela’s Double Discount Garden Bargains show this Sunday at 11am for your Plant of the month.
