Here are this Wednesday's videos.

The first is a look at New Wave Perennial Planting, the border I built in my garden and the pros and cons from my experience. I hope it will be useful to anyone thinking of making such a border...

Amazing French Garden

Here is a video of my visit to the most amazing French garden this summer.

As you will see, it caused vistors to spontaneously break into song. I kid not! And they weren't half bad either!

I loved this one from its topiaried alleys to its manacured potager and white garden! Enjoy...

Dahlias are looking good now.

Anyone whi was with me at Mount Congreve last autumn may recall 'Alva's Regalia' which is looking resplendent at the moment.

French Garden Visit

Yes, I'm running behind here. I was at the Bay and Coolaught yesterday but here's the video of the first if my French garden visits from August.

And two others about what plants I bought in France...

PS The tree in my thumbnail of the first video and my journal photo is an albizia or silk tree. Yesterday I noticed the albizia in the Coolaught greenhouse has flowered this year so there's hope for us in Ireland!
