This time of year when my garden is sad and fading, I love looking back over my photos taken throughout the year, and over the summer, in my own garden and elsewhere. As well as being therapeutic, it also helps me think about what I want to achieve in my garden next year. Here are my 3 favourite plants from this year, they all looked absolutely stunning while in bloom, really creating an impact in the borders.
This Camellia Jury’s Yellow is divine in March and April, with the large flower heads of white outer petals and ruffled pale yellow inner petals.
Eremurus come in yellow, orange and apricot but these white ones looked stunning towering over the borders in the rose garden at Mottisfont.
The plant on the right of this image – Crambe Cordifolia creates a massive floating cloud of tiny white flowers that look amazing at the back of a border, really dreamy.
