Although I have already featured L67, you may have noticed that I hadn’t featured L66. That’s because I wanted to reserve the number for a very special monkey. Yes, of course they are all special I know. But this one, this one is mine.
L66. A very special monkey.
As you can see I am delighted with this little monkey. I had intended to get my own, but not seen any in the nurseries I’d been to, but recently I was up by Lady Green nursery in Ince Blundell near Southport. I felt sure that such a well-stocked nursery would contain monkeys.
In the ‘Conifers & Heathers’ section. A very fine selection of monkeys.
Having selected my monkey, I then drove home with it tucked on the back seat with a blanket around the pot. It was like having a new baby on the back seat!
After a few days in the back yard at home, I take my monkey to its eventual destination, my allotment at Plot 44.
Here, I will grow this in a large pot for a few years. Using the best home made compost.
