About John & Jane's Garden
This was really just an area of long grass 20 years ago, but has kept me busy. I try to change the focus each year, but carnivorous plants and Salvias seem to be enduring at the moment.

Behind the house....with pots...
...and more pots.
Galega officinalis (Goat's Rue) on the left.
Geranium Anne Folkard in the foreground.
Trying to get a bed of Salvias established...
...with Clematis 'Princess Diana' in the middle.
There's a pond there somewhere!....Lonicera involucrata on the right.
The pond has a nasty water-weed.
Through the privet hedge to the other half...
...where I like to propagate...
...and hide in the polytunnel when it rains.
A cheap end-of-season Bougainvillea from a garden centre last year has done well.
The Mandevillas look happy....
...maybe they like the temperatures!
...but the Sarracenias seem happy enough.
Heliotrope, the 'Cherry Pie plant'
One of my favourites, Lantana...
...and the best of all, Eschscholzia californica, the Californian Poppy
Onto the greenhouse....more pots!
The delightful Abutilon 'Nabob'
Lots of Sarracenias...
...and assorted other Sundews...
A few succulents.
The Black Hamburg vine is benefitting from extra attention this year.

Lovely crowded productive garden. What a joy it must be. Fantastic Sarracenias, and as for all those pots, you must be a glutton for punishment! Seriously it is beautiful.
