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
|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
