With the imminent arrival of Royalty one would normally lay out the red carpet, don one’s twin-set n’ pearls and spend hours practising one’s curtsey.
On this occasion one was caught lacking said coloured carpet & such fancy clothing and greeted these royal guests in one’s slightly grubby work attire.
Allow me to introduce the ‘Little Black Prince’ blackberry and the ‘Little Red Princess’ raspberry both from Lubera.
stalkers followers will recall my introduction to Lubera in a recent blog post here.
They are thornless, autumn fruiting plants, bearing fruit on 1 year old stems and are perfect for small spaces, like balconies, patios or growing in pots as they only grow to about 1m tall.
The Tidy Garden flower beds are full to bursting (don’t tell Mr TG!!) so the fact that I could pop these in pots was perfect. They arrived beautifully packaged, clearly labelled and in great condition. In fact I was so ashamed of the state of the pots that I put them in, that I spent a good half hour or so after this shot washing them down with an old back-scrubbing brush.
I even added a layer of pea shingle to add to the ‘poshness’.
Dead posh ay?
They’re now lined up along the back of one of the Square Foot Veg beds where more exciting stuff is going on, but you’ll have to wait for that post.
You can find out more about Lubera here and if you sign up to their newsletter you’ll get to hear about their amazing, weekly deals.
Tiz a Bank Holiday weekend AND don’t forget it’s World Naked Gardening Day tomorrow…have a fab’n!!
