I asked Peter Williams for some recent pictures of his garden to supplement a post I was intending to write and promptly lost my own contribution in the wilds of my computer! It would be a pity to waste Peter’s lovely pictures. Here they are with a few of my own captions
|This plant is a 'must' for any garden. It provides golden colour all of the year. When in flower the orange blossom scent is gorgeous. It needs to be in full light to perform. In shade it is green
|Jack Frost is better in Spring. My friend David Willis is the breeder of 'White' Swan' which is nationally popular. David's plant recently died and Peter gave him a new one!
|Note the smooth line of the lawn and shallow easily maintained edges
Peter has help with his garden design by his former student and friend Julie. She is the one who described his former planting 'Morecombe and Wise'
|I have in my own garden a strong stand of The Bishop of Llandalf series. Fortunately no early frost is forecast before my Open day this Sunday
|Choose your varieties of kniphophia carefully and have flowers right through the Summer
|You will find no stakes in Peter's herbaceous borders
|Is the lily a 'volunteer' in the middle of the rudbeckia? I don't think Julie will approve
You might have missed this Peter Williams post and a picture of Julie
Other Peter posts can be found under Peter Williams in the themes column.
It is my Open day on Sunday. This NGS link provides the details
