Out of my garden

A week off work this week, and the treat of a few days away to get it off to a good start. Sadly the weather did not quite live up to expectations, September can usually be relied upon to give beautiful sunny days and gently crisp mornings – but so far, not this week.  However Saturday was beautiful and reports of trouble on the M25 meant taking a different route into Kent (the destination for a few days away).  And how lucky that the detour was taken!  It took us past Sissinghurst; which gave an ideal place for a stop to break the journey.

I did not have my camera with me, but grabbed a few pictures on my phone, and just wanted to share this fabulous daisy with you.  It was in the White Garden, standing about 6′ tall and was smothered in flowers – stunning.  It is called Leucanthemella Serotina and has gone to the top of my ‘must get’ list.

About Sara Davison

I've been gardening as long as I can remember; initially as a child, learning from my mother, and then with each successive garden I've owned, I've expanded my knowledge and my plant collection. Starting Spring 2014 I'm taking my first steps as a flower farmer, growing British flowers for cutting on an acre of rented farmland in the Surrey Hills.

    Sissinghurst is so lovely – we visited several years ago, during a week when it rained every single day, but Sissinghurst is still one of the brightest memories of that week. I’ll post some photos one day…

    I’ve not been there for many years but would like to go again. That’s a fine looking daisy. xx

    Oh, Sissinghurst! I adore that place and the White Garden. You have great taste, in gardens and flowers. I have as many varieties of daisies as I can fit into my tiny garden. I don’t think there is a more cheerful flower or a more reliable one. : )
