For years I had a golden pea – Lathyrus aureus – which I’d grown from seed. Then, the rabbits decided they liked it too. The rest is a dismal story.
After its demise, I tried to grow another one, but all attempts failed. Then, one of our gardeners in the Gardening class gave me a seedling from their Golden Pea. She has just asked me if it still survives, and sent me a picture of the parent plant.
Yes it does survive! And it’s flowering right now.
This is the picture sent to me of its Mum, or Dad, or both… And a lovely thing it is.
It’s a shrubby, herbaceous plant, not a climber.
Thanks for giving me one of your offspring! :~))
Mail order plants can get a bad press, especially at the moment, when both Royal Mail and private couriers have been overwhelmed by demand from the locked-down population.
One of our gardeners has received a parcel today, and is dancing a jig on her lawn. I’m not surprised – the plants look lovely. Here they are:
A box full of Nemesia – and it looks like good, stout packaging.
And here they are, unpacked.
Super! I should give a shout out to the supplier (Plants by Post), and no, none of us get any benefits from them. But if a supplier does well, we should say so.
As an afterword – I’ve had to edit yesterday’s post. It isn’t a tree stump, after all…
