I have always had a very strict colour code in the garden – mainly green with flowers in white, blue and purple maybe the occasional pale pink or lilac. Never red, yellow or orange.
However my preferences have changed. For the last year I have been drawn to orange.
Only six weeks to the rescheduled Stansted Garden Show, my wish list will be full of orange flowers with some cadbury chocolate purple ones for contrast. Hoping to find those copper orange crocus and more crocosmia. My order for 100 orange tulips has already been placed. It is official, I love orange flowers.

I wouldn’t be without Alstroemeria ‘Indian Summer’, orange from May to October. Wish I could count slugs like that in ones, I kill them by the dozen, if not hundreds, day in, day out.
I will add the Alstroemeria to my wish list. Thank you. Just trying the desposable beer traps but don’t think they will replace my nightly hunt.
i have a colour code i my garden. the colour code is there is no code! funnily enough the one i dislike the most is white, closely followed by green (flowers). but even those get a look in. sometimes looks like an accident in the sweet shop, but mostly i love it.
Your garden looks very sunny so colours look amazing. My garden is walled, two story to the south and east, three story to the north so I work with a lot of shade making white crucial. Funnilt enough I love a green flower too. We are chalk and cheese but that’s what makes S onS so much fun.
