Petersham Nurseries: Evolution of a Cutting Garden – 28th April 2018 (in moving pictures too …) plus more tulips and a tour of the garden centre. I’m too good …

Well I must apologise first - shaky camera, dull and overcast, fingers in the frame ... a less than dynamic narration but nevertheless, the subject of this amateur videography is still shining through.

A little bit of repetition in these images, but I am dithering about editing them and can't decide exactly which I prefer, so you're getting pretty much them all!
