In Bud at BBHQ

Peeps, I am so sorry that I haven’t updated for a while, ‘life’ has just got in the way a bit.

So, there is some EPIC catching up to do as anyone with greenfingers knows, things really get a wriggle on in the garden at this time of year.

I wanted to start with an update on what is just coming into bud in the nursery.  I love this stage of a plants’ development because you’re on the cusp of receiving your rewards for all the nurturing you have been doing.

So, here’s whats currently ‘in bud’

Campanula Double White 090616
