An afternoon in the greenhouse beckons as my ranunculus claws from @farmergracy soak; they arrive all dried and shrivelled but will get a head start by having a drink for few hours to swell up. Grown in seed trays, they are grown on in pots from February before being planted in greenhouse to give six weeks of stunning cut flowers for Easter👌 #cutflowergarden #ranunculus #ranunculuslove #cutflowers #grownnotflown

An uplifting gardening story for the weekend; so legendary plant breeder, Peter Catt who bred Choisya Sundance, seen here with this new Choisya Greenfingers, a stunning fragrant evergreen that flowers so promiscuously. 

With royalties from the sale of the plant being donated to @greenfingerscharity that raises funds to design and create gardens in children’s hospices, @kategouldgardens features this stunning new plant in her design at RHS Chelsea in 2019 

And despite me helping nurture the garden, the Choisya really thrives in this stunning show garden to celebrate the charity’s 20th anniversary 

8 months later and I meet Peter for the first time collecting four of his newly created Choisya Greenfingers to be featured in house designer @sophie_greenphotography fabulous riverside schemes that all started with a free garden design consult on Garden Re leaf Day when we raised £5k in donations for @greenfingerscharity in return for free garden design consults

Clients thrilled to support the Charity so everyone wins👌👏

This fabulous conversion of a former Plymouth Brethren Chapel with a stunning courtyard design by @joaldersondesigns100 

Sweeping across are clay pavers by @brickworksvandemoortel from @countrysuppliesuk so now off to enter for #claypaverawards 🤞🤞

350kg Corten gate opens effortlessly created by @the_gentleman_blacksmith_ltd to hide a secret courtyard with parasol cherries from @deepdaletrees providing shade and nesting sites already for a pigeon and a dove👌

SUDS compliment resin bound gravel from @addagrip contrasts against the pavers whilst bespoke polished paving from @onerumley leads to the front door. 

Pleached Pyrus chanticleer from @readyhedge already are knitting together to form a stunning screen on two sides with shade tolerant ferns, Brunneras and hydrangeas from @northhillnurseries form a lush underplanting

Finally must not forget @grocottandmurfit who created those stunning walls and who were sooo amazing as they juggled with us during this lockdown build🙏😮👏#claypavers #courtyard #courtyarddesign #gardendesign #burnhammarket

Thrilled to meet designer @victoria__wade and present @joe__wade with boxes of bulbs donated by @jub_holland and @taylorsbulbs1919 as the new woodland garden takes shape @ty_hafan children’s hospice 

Funded by @greenfingerscharity as Trustee its so uplifting to see a design that’s been talked about for 2 years emerge despite the challenges of lockdown. The pandemic has made us appreciate the outdoors more than ever but imagine how much pleasure a garden can give for children with life limiting illnesses, their families and friends as they listen to the bird song, feel the sunshine and take in the flowers 🤔👌🙏 #tyhafan #tyhafanchildrenshospice #greenfingerscharity #childrenshospice #woodlandgarden #jubbulbs #bulbs

GREEN WASH by @coopuk as they adorn their stores with messages about @cop26uk yet where they fail to keep newly planted trees even staked let alone alive outside their new store in #hermitage 

And yes I first posted pics of their dead and failing trees 6 weeks ago and have heard NoTHING back from them 

Afraid climate change not going to be dealt with by a few meaningless banners  #climatechange #greenwash #coop #coopshopping #deadtrees #hermitage #cop26
