It’s that time of year when Springwatch normally hits the screen – here’s my version – Bud Watch.
I thought it would be interesting to track a bud from birth to flowering.
And here’s our guinea pig – snapped just this morning.
This plant is something of an old friend. It is from my own breeding line and was growing in a friends garden before lifted for last year’s Chelsea. It never made the show last year – whilst looking good for this. Fingers crossed for it!
