The first Sweet Pea flower has finally ‘Popped’, with promise of many more to come!
Here is a gallery of pics showing the progression of the East Side Garden – I managed to find some pics that quite old, so you really get to see how the East Side has changed and progressed over the last few years…
During the raid on the Reardon’s Garden, there was a plant in flower that really caught my attention. They had striking foliage but what really caught my attention were the flowers! Chris had 2 different types growing and the flowers were Green/ Green yellow!

I found an awesome Red Chinese Lantern Tree growing in roadside garden
Mum struggles to propagate the Red ones so im hoping these will take off so we can share

hope they work out.
Mum makes awesome ‘twisted plants’ she takes 3 or 4 different colours of these and plaits them into a standard… like this one https://www.jparkers.co.uk/plant-0001292/abutilon-tricolour-p12/
I’m determined to beat her, and create a 5 colour variety!
