Even with our disappointing summer my fledgling garden has done really well. My hollyhock (which started life in a bag from Poundland) was newly planted in February & it's just a picture at the moment. I was a bit concerned during the heavy winds we had at the weekend by it stood up to it valiantly- with a bit of staking by David of course! My very favourites, my fuchsias just continue to flourish even though they started as just plug plants this year. As for the hollyhock we're wondering if there is a giant at the top with a pot of gold or was that a beanstalk...........!
