Surviving remnant

The front garden of Marmalade Cottage wasn't ever (as far as the reinventors can tell) much to look at.  When we moved in, it was brown and sad.

Just hanging on were three hydrangeas.  The plan was to plant out the front garden with masses of flowers - all white in contrast with the red brick of the cottage.  Hydrangeas are rarely white.

The practical reinventor cut the hydrangeas back savagely and applied glyphosate.

This is what happened:

Looks like they're staying.

  1. If they survived glyphosate the deserve to live! In the right spot I love these surprisingly tough plants. And they're the right era for your place too!
