A gladioli in the bog garden

Earlier in the year, one of the other members of my Knit and Natter group gave me a plant for my bog garden. It had been in her garden but she couldn’t remember what it was.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve watched the flowerhead grow and realised that it must be a gladioli. And now I know what colour it is.

I guess my bog garden isn’t particularly boggy then. Very nice to see such a beautiful pink, though.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. A good piece of nurturing

    Very pretty. I suspect gladioli are much tougher than we think. I have gladioli shooting up all over the plot. Must have been the previous plotter, which means they survived being lost in the undergrowth, then strimmed, rotavated then dug!!
