Members’ gardens, June 2021

Here is Carolyn’s lovely peony before it was battered by the recent rain storms! And a picture of her lovely clematis Hagley’s Hybrid.

This is our Treasurer Ron’s lovely rose “Tender Loving Care”. Must ask him for some cuttings!

Wonderful Echium towers in Mike’s garden in Eltham, which he opened to raise funds for the Hospice Open Gardens scheme.

Member Sharon has sent these two pictures in. She says: “My favourite flower in the garden at present is a cream, fragrant Primula Alpicola. The scent is divine! It grows next to Aquilegias and Nemesia Wisley Vanilla. The best part about this little primula is that I bought it at the CABAHS plant sale in the Old Pond Garden held last summer 2020. Does anyone recognise this as a plant they brought in for sale? Thank you, I am very grateful.”

Here is Jillian’s favourite rose “Rhapsody in Blue” looking wonderful this June.

Libertia is doing its thing in Kathy’s front garden. Idea copied from a lovely dry garden at Winchelsea’s NGS open gardens a few years ago. This year the spiky leaves took a real hit from the cold Spring winds, and look sadly brown, but lots of nice new green ones are coming up from the base.
