These small gardens are in what is described as Whiton Street.
This is in the fruit garden with a greenhouse to die for well actually I can't remember the make but the one I really like is an Alitex or Hartley Botanical this was neither but still lovely.
This is the Monocot border. Many years ago I was quite intrigued by the word Monocot it has a sort of specialness about it. I came home after seeing it and realised I had a border that could also be described as Monocot except for a climbing rose and clematis on the wall. However due to invasion of ground elder and my incapacity to garden I got Mike to plant up with shrubs.
The sign there says.
Flowering plants are divided into two groups Monocotyledons and Dicotlyedons. There are three major differences between the two groups.
When the seeds first germinate monocots only have one seed leaf whereas dicots have two.
The leaf veins in monocots usually run parallel to each other, as in grasses, the veins in dicots form a branched grid as in most tree leaves.
The flower parts of monocots tend to occur in multiples of three, the flower parts of dicots usually occur in multiples of four or five.
The vegetable plot a bit like a small allotment area showing different styles of managing the plot.
The Alpine House many may have seen my earlier post on my Mother's day trip.
