Aqualega Success

We have many aqualega in the garden that come up every year, but they are mostly purple and white varieties so I wanted to grow something a bit more exotic.

So I grew Aqualega from seed last year, kept them in pots over the winter and planted them out this year. They've just started to flower, they are amazingly colourful.


Highlands Hotter Than Rhodes Today

Just seen the BBC weather forecast and it said that the Highlands was the warmest place in the UK today. In fact it was warmer than places like Rhodes and The Canaries. It has been a beautiful day.|
