A new bay tree
The nicest pot however is one I have been after for a while. Many many years ago my dad bought this terracotta pot. It used to live in the back garden & contained a fuchia. Over time the fuchia died & the pot remained empty.
Not long after I started my veg patch my dad was inspired to grow a few things of his own. The terracotta pot became his cucumber pot. It lived in his conservatory & one plant would produce over 50 cucumbers.
Now due to his blindness he has given up on veg growing & I shall be keeping him supplied with tomatoes & runner beans. I have finally been given his terracotta pot.
I wanted something special to plant in it. Something long lasting. On a peruse around the local garden centre Mike spotted the bay trees. We bought a smaller specimen with a view to training it somehow.
The paving slabs will be moved shortly & more slate chippings will be purchased. I shall be placing the pot right in the centre.
Enjoy your day
