Summer is on its way and our Bradbury House gardens are full of colour. Hanging baskets are evident in abundance, lawns mown, paths swept and the weeding and cutting back are never ending.
Our late very wet, cold and then warm spring has both hindered and helped our gardens and we have lost a few plants. Now we are enduring an invasion of slugs, which are chomping away in the beds! Hostas and sedum are on the menu at the moment!
We have a great display of fragrant roses by the pond. Ceanothus, alliums, foxgloves, passion flowers, morning glory, lavenders, clematis, jasmine, phlox, hydrangeas, buddleja and pelargonium are already established in the beds and on the fences. The azalea and irises are slowly fading away.
