National Volunteers Week. Thank you for the muffins Charlton House!
Rheum and foxgloves in the Long Border (foxgloves courtesy of Greenwich Park – thank you!):
The pomegranate is flowering in the Peace Garden (top left) the stag beetles are hatching and marching, there is a lovely Malope trifida ‘Vulcan’ annual in the Long Borders (bottom left) and the gravel garden has a new addition of Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’ to add some more zing!
Our Papaver orientale ‘Burning Heart’ have exploded into flower this week. They are fabulous plants, look at the size of them! They came as bare roots, all the way from West Lothian. Thank you Binny Plants.
One thought on “OPG diary – June 2021”
What a difference from pre-Covid days to now. Royal Greenwich don’t know how lucky they are to have such a dedicated team of volunteers! I love the garden now. It is a wonderful delight. Congratulations to the hard-working gardeners, Jason and especially to Kathy, without whom none of this would have happened. Thank you.
