Blooming Friday – Essentials

This week’s theme for  Blooming Friday set by Katarina over at Roses and Stuff is ‘Essentials’

I have been pondering what Katarina’s intention was when she chose this theme.  Firstly, I was going to photograph the tools I consider essential in the garden but then I  realised that this wasn’t particularly apt for ‘Blooming Friday’.  I then thought, well food is essential so maybe I should be featuring edibles but I don’t have any appropriate photos or anything to photograph.  Then I decided that I would feature plants that for me are essential to my gardening happiness.

A few people who know me well will have  spotted my quiet addiction to Primulas.  I don’t think I would be happy now if I had a garden without them.  I love  them they are so pretty and dainty and easy to grow from seed.  I have a mass of magenta candelabra primulas and have recently ordered Primula serratifolia and Primula sikkimensis from Kevock Garden Plants.

My other essential flower family in the garden are Irises.  I love them all from the Bearded Irises through the Siberian Irises to the tiny Iris Reticulata

Those are my two essential flower families.  Of course there are lots of other plants I like but I would really miss having Iris and Primulas
