|Stockbridge Arrow on 4th April 2012 and on 6th June 2012|
Thursday, 7 June 2012
Wednesday was warmer than the last few days but then it spoilt itself with some light rain starting late afternoon.
Last August I gave our large camellia the Chelsea chop. It was a little late for the so called chop but it was pretty severe as the shrub had been allowed to grow out of control for a number of years. It was cut back to bare wood and I wasn’t sure that it would re-grow from such a severe pruning.
There are now new shoots forming on the old branches so it’s now going to be interesting to see just how these shoots grow and how long it takes them to produce flowers.
I thought that are our new rhubarb crown “Stockbridge Arrow” had rotted away over winter but before I tipped out the pot it surprised me by produced a tiny shoot and so it lived to fight another day. It’s now produced a strong enough plant to be added to our collection on the allotment.
