2019 – CHW
Daphne Scott-Harden’s wonderful garden at Newbiggin near Blanchland had suffered in the rain as well. The roses were shattered and the herbaceous borders nearly over but the new growth on everything was impressive even without the colour. A year ago the garden was full out.
A couple of fine potfulls of Agapanthus ‘Streamline’ (I think?) nevertheless.
Sorbus wilsoniana with three clusters of berries ripening away on a young plant planted only in 2013.
A new syringa species to us flowering for the first time in August. Syringa reticulata looks much like Heptacodium miconoides but the scent is rather nicer!
