Wow,loved that trip thru your garden!! You have a lot of beauties there.What is that yellow blooming tree that looks like candy corn,and what is the name of that purple geranium,is it johnsons blue??
Love the foxgloves,i have never had any luck with those,what is your secret to growing them??

You're in the U.K. right?? Or do I have you mixed up with someone else??

RE: July Blooms.

Hi Kathi,..you nearly have me pinpointed though a tad further than the U.K.,..i am in Ireland,..right in the middle of it,..where we call the midlands,..its fairly flat,..misty mornings and many rain showers though seldom snow,..2010 was the last snow worth mentioning.

Ah that yellow blooming tree catches everyone's eye,..i have two in the garden and they were from a cutting,..they are "Cytisus scoparius",'Scotch Broom',..and the Geranium is "Geranium Rozanne",'Cranesbill Geranium',..however i would not swear to that as it looks so similar to Johnsons Blue and a few others lol.

The Foxgloves thrive for me as i tend to just let them grow where ever they pop up,..they do grow taller and stronger when not moved,..i love how they produce cross colours.

Delighted you liked the garden trip,..though the video jumped a bit.

It only jumped a bit in the very beginning,the rest of it was great,well worth the jump!!!!

I think we may be able to grow that scotch broom here in S.Calif,will have to check that out!!! Seems I've heard some folks talk about it here,although I don't think I've ever seen it.
Again,TFS

Hi Kathi,..that Scotch Broom will grow for you in California but make sure that the one you buy or get a cutting from is the one you like,..there are many species and various colours,..some just plain yellow,..very nice but not as impressive as the yellow and pure red.
