Urban walled cottage garden in St. Margarets, Richmond-Upon-Thames. Am a complete amateur with a blank canvas. I love all pink/mauve/blue/white flowers. Even peach and cream are ok but not into yellows, reds or orange. Love Olive trees, Bay trees, English Lavender, Fruit trees, Roses, Lilac, Sweet Peas, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Gardenia, Citrus trees, herbs and anything scented really. I don't see the point of woody, unscented shrubs at all! I love Lupins, Delphiniums and Foxgloves too because they are so quintessentially English. Looking for inspiration and to gain a modicum of knowledge as at the moment i am the kind of person who repots a plant and kills it! Why do most ceramic pots not have drainage holes? Hoping to find inspiration to plant my perfect garden here X
