About Helen Johnstone

I live in Malvern, Worcestershire and am a very keen gardener. I started the Patient Gardener Blog in January 2008 as a way of recording what was happening in my garden and connecting with other like-minded people. I started a second blog PatientGardener 365 January 2013 in order to try and post a photo a day to capture what is growing in my garden or places I have visited

    Lovely Helen and great post

  2. Helen this is gorgeous…it is my dream to get one of my hydrangeas to bloom blue…I have moved a few around this fall in hopes they will grow more, bloom more and turn blue!

      Hi Donna – I have to admit that this isnt growing in my garden at all. It was at a garden I visited in Devon and all the hydrangeas were shades of blue so I suspect they had the right type of soil

  3. Donna says:

    This one is a really lovely vibrant blue and it looks nice and healthy. I’m not over keen on the wishy-washy pink ones though, they just seem to hang around looking a bit ‘blah’ to me – maybe it’s just the one in next doors garden!

    It is a lovelyshade of blue, much better than the pink ones. I don’t think I have ever seen a blue flower I didn’t like!

  5. Wow! A lot can be conveyed without words!

  6. My favorite shrub. I so love hydrangeas.

    I have quite a few hydrangeas – some I started from my last garden and about 8 in big pots! I don’t think I have this one – very pretty. I have 2/3 lace caps and some really pretty ones. Yea my gorgeous dark purple dutch irises are out about 21 this year – the clump keeps getting bigger. A pink peach blossom is out behind it – pretty! If I have to move (might have to) I intend to dig them up! Moving is such a pain – especiially as plants and pots need to go tooooooo!!!!

    I’m with you on liking hydrangeas Helen. They just need to be babied in our dry climate so not the best fit. :(
    Spectacular photo!
