Pottery House Garden

One of the great pleasures of running a B&B is to have the time to look after the garden. The first summer we where here, 2004, we didn't really have time to do much as we only moved in in May. Last year the garden was very disappointing, partly I think due to teh cold summer, and partly due to the soil being poor here.

This year has been much better though. Our pots and hanging baskets are looking very good at the moment, as well as the flower beds.

And one thing I like t grow is standard fuschias, I start with 69p pots from the garden centre and by this time of year they should be reasonable sized bushes. But the trick to stunning standards is to keep them over the winter, they always look fantastic from the 2nd year on.

Here are a few of mine.
