|Just because Christmas tree and Chrysanthemum both start with the letters CH doesn't mean that they go well together Carmen.|
I would like to thank both Garden News and Amateur Gardening for their free seeds, they really made my garden look an absolute eyesore. I suspect Carol Klein has a hand in choosing the seeds, as much as I admire Carol I find her taste in plants leaves a lot to be desired.
|Shasta daisies can be found growing wild in any hedgerow in the UK.|
|Cephalophora, ugly, yellowish green flowers, the one saving grace about these plants are their excellent smell of pineapple.|
|Cosmos, hideous looking carrot top bush with piss yellow flowers, the picture depicted on the seed packet looked lovely.|
Chrysanthemum x Ragwort and by the look of their opening buds, yet more yellow (see top photo) I can't comment on the Zinnias just yet as they're not in flower.
My maid of all work "that good taste forgot" Carmen, visited a garden centre last year, she came back with a bag of dahlia tubers (cause they were going cheap) and a monkey puzzle tree, yet more green and yellow, you couldn't make it up.
I was looking forward to having a salmon pink garden this year, ah well, there is always next year, if I'm spared.
And one other thing, my Strong Annabelle hydrangea has been looking like broccoli for weeks!
