What are these mystery flowers in my garden?


Craig's potted garden Hiya,

Hope you are well and had a good weekend.

With the weather being so good recently I've been enjoying my garden and it has over the last few weeks just burst into colour; it's lovely!

Thought I would share some pictures with you. I have moved most of my plants (oh the joy of gardening in pots!) to be by my window, that way I get to enjoy them from my own bedroom every morning when I open the shutters or if I am doing some work from home.

Here's what you can see in the pics:

Hot Lips plant in Craig's garden In photo 1 (above) – you can see my collection of plants outside my bedroom window, can you spot the strawberries in the brilliant stack of pots?

In photo 2 – you can see the delightful Hot Lips, what a gorgeous red colour they're and looking great against an otherwise boring fence!

In photo 3 – look at my amazing tree lilies in their second year, they are looking so strong and healthy; I did have a bout of lily beetle but that seems to be under control now.

Pretty white flowers in Craig's garden In photo 4 – a lovely white flower plant that I bought from QVC but have no idea what it is.  Any ideas? It has pretty white flowers and spiky leaves.

In photo 5 – my first day lily of the year!

In photo 6 – my mystery flower! Any idea what this pretty pink flower is that has grown amongst my aguilega? Is it a wild flower (ie a weed!)?

In photo 7 – my first beautiful white rose. 
Craig's mystery flower!
In photo 8 – what do you think of my gorgeous Pinks? At the moment I am cutting them and bringing in armfulls, it's amazing and they are so fragrant, I have them all over the house.

White rosde blooming in Craig's garden I do hope you like the pictures, do feel free to send any of yours through to me here at QVC.

    Hi Craig, love your colourful pots, my tree lilies are taller than me now being nearly 6 feet tall, I also had lily beetle, the only cure is to handpick them off the plant and squash them (non-toxic!). Your pretty pink flower is a british native wildflower, common name is Herb Robert. Keep smiling! Love Penelope.
