Six on Saturday

Last week, I asked my gardening groups if they would like to have the Six on Saturday slot that week.  There was enthusiasm, but a distinct lack of photos.  However, cometh another week, cometh the deluge, and I’m now spoilt for choice.  This is all their own work.

1  Trachycarpus fortunei.

It’s in the corner of the garden, and is now about 10 feet high.  Wowsa!

2  Oyster (I think) mushrooms.

From the same gardener as the Trachycarpus.  She left the box on her kitchen table overnight, and look what happened the next morning!  Wowsa, again!

3  From a visit to Chapel-en-le-Frith, so it’s A garden, if not THE garden.  This gardener sent me a load of images from this visit, and it was very difficult to choose.

The garden is Higher Crossings, open under the Open Gardens Scheme, and is in the High Peak of the Derbyshire Peak District, which is making a spectacular background.

4  Another one from Higher Crossings.

It is, of course, rhododendron time.

4  Higher Crossings again.

The super shade lover Spotty Dotty, or Podophyllum versipelle ‘Spotty Dotty’, to be precise.

5  A fourth one from Higher Crossings.

Another lovely image of this garden.  I think that must be Euphorbia griffithii ‘Fireglow’ in the foreground.  And what a spectacular Rhododendron.

6  This one was sent as evidence!

We’re sowing herb seeds this term, and it has to be said that there have been some catastrophes.  ‘Death by…’ (insert method of choice) seems to be the watch word of the day.  This gardener is off on a week’s holiday, and she has sent this as evidence that the Cinnamon Basil was definitely growing.  Don’t they look good?

So, these were my choices for Six on Saturday from those submitted.  I could easily have made it 16 on Saturday…
