New Additions

What a bad day torrential downpours certainly mean the garden won't need watered again had to go north to order rosettes for competitions so a trip to B&Q was made lots of lovely lilies but not on my list called into Mahon garden centre to see what they recommended to try and curtail blackspot on my roses got Rose clear ultra which hopefully will work bought a box of Top Rose feed as well and no visit to a garden centre is complete without a look round the displays outdoors thankfully the rain had stopped for a while. New additions acquired Eryngium  Bourgatii that has a pink tinge to it's prickly leaves and Actaea Brunette which has lovely foilage  at the moment they're in waiting.

Hosta think they;ll be good additions here, Mary don't know if it's not available here but definitely on the shelves in the north was in B&Q as well. Boots I have bought quite a few plants there as it's probably the best garden centre close to here.
