New Plant Purchases

We went to RHS Wisley today and came away inspired, and with six new plants! I’m very happy because I got some plants that have been on my list for a while. I got a bleeding heart (Dicentra spectabilis), a decorative blue grass (Festuca glauca ‘Intense Blue’), bronze fennel (Foeniculum vulgare ‘Purpureum’), a double-flowered, creeping chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile ‘Flore Pleno’), and corsican mint (Mentha requienii). Lots of plants that beg to be touched and sniffed! I also bought a replacement for my hydrangea that sadly died from waterlogging because I failed to put the pot on feet. I was hoping I could revive it but it’s definitely as dead as a parrot. I chose a Hydrangea serrata ‘Bluebird’ which is a lace-cap like I had before but the previous one was a H. macrophylla.
