Picture taken by journalist Heidi Løkken in my garden this week showing my straggling tree climbing Hablitzia together with a French dandelion cultivar “Vert de Montmagny Ameliore”. Before I really discovered perennials, this was a part of my vegetable garden I struggled with as it was so dry under the birch tree during summer. Using perennials, the same area is one of the most productive parts of the garden as it’s damp enough when the perennials are growing strongest to the end of June!
I’m talking on both days at the Walled Kitchen Garden Network Forum weekend at the National Trust Property Croome Court in Worcestershire, England on 3rd-4th October. See the link for details (it’s open to all!)
