Terry Bane has spent a life time in horticulture as a professional and way of life, enjoying growing of flowers, fruit, vegetables and native plants for biodiversity, wildlife sustenance and habitat.

 

As Terry approaches full retirement already having developed two websites Terry wanted to share his knowledge, experiences and ideas with gardeners, horticulturalists and community enthusiasts and is developing this website.

 

Terry and Mirelle regularly travel around Britain on their holidays, day trips and in their field of work.

 

"We have seen some fantastic floral and sustainable displays in British villages, towns, cities and coastal resorts that have been created and are managed with pride and passion by professionals, groups and volunteers"

 

"Over the last 45 years I have had the pleasure to see and photograph many plants, floral displays and features taking note of genus, species and varieties  used, I have net worked, shared and encouraged the use of similar ideas in the Norwich landscape with colleagues, friends and volunteers at work and as part of my Norwich and Anglia in Bloom volunteering".

 

Terry and Mirelle are particularly keen to grow and encourage use of attractive plants at THE DELL but most importantly those sustaining beneficial insects and native wildlife that help to increase BIODIVERSITY.

 

"We hope our photography helps show some plants and ideas of interest that encourage you to grow and use".

Terry and Mirelle are professional gardeners, living and working in the Norwich area of Norfolk, much of their leisure time is spent on managing their one acre garden, visiting gardens, nurseries, landscapes, horticultural shows and events locally and across the UK, both taking many horticultural and nature photographs.

 

We hope this our developing website inspires you to visit and see more of our beautiful country and the fantastic floral and sustainable plantings and landscapes that not only give so many people pleasure but also provide a valuable food source for beneficial insects, birds and native wildlife.

 

We hope you take note of the ideas and practices being used, share, adapt, use and develop in your community and share your experiences and achievements.

FLOWERS AND FOLIAGE SEEN AND ENJOYED AT THE DELL - OCTOBER 2018

 

Autumn Colour - Box Garden and The Dell

 

 

October saw the last of the summer containers fizzle out, tender plants were brought into the greenhouse.

 

We have been picking, eating and storing a good crop of many Apple varieties despite the hot dry summer and a unusual large number of hungry wasps.

 

Good Autumn foliage colour are showing as the days are cooling, especially Acers and the Tulip Tree.

 

Ladybirds and Lacewing are finding their way into our house to overwinter, Honey Bees have been active during brighter days on our large display of Asters.

 

Mirelle has been planting newly purchased Anemones "Swan Hybrids", Viburnums and a Malus trilobata.
