Almost as soon as the Foxe pack left, the good weather returned and the garden has begun to forgive me for the neglect it suffered last month.
The montbretia was being thrown out by a neighbour in favour of a cobblelock driveway, about three years ago. Now thriving in the Baskerville Manor parklands.
The summer lilac is a blow-in. The fuchsia was in the bargain bucket in Tesco with about one leaf. 5 years later, also thriving at Baskerville Manor.
