Columbia Road Market 3
This week I accompanied my neighbour to the market, and we chose some plants for his courtyard garden. We bought these two Hydrangeas for £8 the pair, to plant in a south-facing bed against an old wall. One is a Delft blue (Teller) with interestingly patterned petals and the other is a more classic variety (Macrophylla) that turns from a soft pink through to tones of blue as the flowers mature. Also, we bought two Clematis for a fiver each to grow along the wall, a deep blue one (Viticella, Polish spirit) and a scented pink variety (Montana Elizabeth) which my neighbour plans to grow on the fence beside the gate. A satisfactory haul for £18.
