Pulmonaria plants are so easy to grow ... here are some of my growing tips.

Pulmonaria is a good nectar source for drowsy and hungry queen bumblebees! The plants will grow in sun or shade ... especially here in Scotland just as long as the soil doesn't dry out. Not much of a chance of that with our weather! They are useful ground cover plants or can grow beneath trees and shrubs. Infact they are unfussy plants and will even grow in difficult places!

They are favourite cottage garden plants as they are so easy to care for, very forgiving and very adaptable. Moreover growing pulmonaria is so easy … especially if you are encouraging your children or grandchildren to start gardening and develop an interest in wildlife.

Lots of more photos on my new website ...

I visited a favourite old garden of mine last week.  It's a garden where snowdrops grow in wild utter abandonment alongside pockets of bright yellow winter aconites and purple crocus. As a photographer there's such a distinctive character to this old garden that I so admire. It's trapped in time allowing nature a free hand to roam.  Yet it's still loved and cherished for the flowers and memories it gives it's now much older and frailer gardener.  Click on the link to read more on the blog...

Why not dress your garden with a little black this year?
All of us ladies have a timeless little black dress in our wardrobe; it's versatile and perfect for so many occasions; there's always a style to flatter no matter what our shape and size.  It's just the same with almost black foliage and flowering plants.  They're useful in the garden; they add a touch of glamour; and there are many to choose from no matter what the size of your garden
