It’s time for P.I.Ps to take centre stage, or they can try but the roses outshine everything else at the moment. The P.I.Ps that I’m talking about are the poppies, iris and peonies that fill a gap which sometimes appear at this time of year, not this year though. They are glamorous but fleeting, loved all the more because they are so beautiful, but don’t stay very long in the garden.
So these are my six (or 7! ) for this week, I hope I will be excused for slipping in an extra one. Many years ago when we used to open for the NGS, this is the weekend we opened as everything seemed to be flowering at once, it is still a good time for the garden, but makes it very hard which plants to focus on and just choose a few.I will keep all the roses for a serarate post. Many thanks to Jon The Propagator for hosting as usual, do pay him a visit, it will be worth it!
