Tender heart. And the orange tag lady, too. You'll have to show us pictures when it's recovered, planted out and blooming.


I can't resist a plant rescue mission.
I recently rescued a ginkgo biloba which had been baking in my late mother's greenhouse. I've been nursing it back to health and it was shooting up and looking very lush and healthy.
I also rescued two of her beloved indoor orchids, one of which has rewarded me with weeks and weeks of delicate flowers, the other, which I thought was on its way to the compost heap, has picked up with twice-weekly misting, and is sending out some stumpy shoots which are probably aerials or even flowers.
However, back to the ginkgo tree......we went on another garden rescue mission to Wales and the poor ginkgo has been baked and lost most of its leaves. My dear old neighbour had been ill and couldn't do his usual watering job.
Back to ginkgo rescue mission phase 2!
