to and from the plot I pass this hydrangea which is outside one of the blocks of flats.
I’m surprised that it does so well given that it’s in a tiny patch of earth surrounded by concrete.
Just beyond where I turn off to head for the site gates there’s this even bigger one.
I mention and show both of these as they’re a plant I really like, and if I had a garden would certainly feature in it.
A couple of weeks ago I acquired a small hydrangea that had been dug up and was going to thrown away. It hadn’t been done carefully being in two halves with not much roots. I tidied it up before planting and watering. This is what it looked like when I’d done that.
Since then, not surprisingly, it has lost most of its leaves and hasn’t been looking too good. So fingers crossed that it will survive and be okay, although if it does I doubt if it’ll ever be quite as magnificent as the ones above.
Happy gardening, and have a good week!
