Sunshine and filming

Posted by Sue Beesley on 16 Jul 2007 at 09:35 PM

After yesterday's continual rain, it was a joy to see the garden basking in sunshine this morning.  All the plants look so much better in sunshine - the grasses were upright and glittery, the colours looked brighter and the whole garden had taken on a cheery, welcoming look.

We got stuck into our final day of planting, finished the wall planter and the fig tree seat, mulched all the borders and trained the Vitis purpurea up the fence.  Hazel did a bit of emergency sourcing of a few missing grasses and Heucheras and brought the curved bench, which arrived just in time for the film crew.

The afternoon was a bit stop start with a sharp shower and a filmed interview session with the BBC Gardener of the Year 2007 team. But we still finished everything we could have done today.  Tomorrow we need to take half a dozen lavender to site, plant the chamomile and sempervivum in the path, clean everything and dress the set ready for judging.  So another early start beckons, but I'm now used to being up for 6.30 so it won't be a problem. I can always sleep next week...
