New arrivals and stranger things……

1) Tomato plant. This is one of two plants given to me by a fellow gardener. However, I’ve noticed this flower of unusual shape. Not knowing the variety and not known by the giver either. Well, it’s a mystery, such an odd tomato flower shape. Being a curious fellow I had to find out what it is and what kind of tomato it may be. What I could end up with is a tomato of many tomatoes in a cluster. This is known as fasciation. It’s a matter of waiting to find out what we get from this unusual plant. Could be one big bunch or a few tomatoes clumped together. Will they even ripen. Updates on this weird plant in the weeks to come.

2) Helichrysum Petiolaris. One of many clusters of flower buds. Also it has a honey like scent that I remember from last year.

3) Clematis Zara. This is new Clematis Zara I bought recently. From the Boulevard range. A pale blue.

4) Clematis Ooh La La. Oh and this is another Clematis I bought, too. So new that I’ve not got too planting it out. It too is from the Boulevard range. Pink colouring which prefers a shadier position.

5) Buddlejia Purple Chip. A favourite of mine that flowers in August usually. Wonder if it might get a flowering this month as it’s one week of July to go.

6) Olive. Here’s the evidence of olives forming. Never had any that have come to proper fruition.


That’s my Six on Saturday for this week. It’s a big thank you to the one and only Jon The Propagator for his stupendous idea it was to create Six on Saturday. Each week it brings more and more Six on Saturday blogs. If you want to know how to go about it all then take a look at this blog Six on Saturday – a participant guide. Until next week keep safe but enjoy whatever you do.
