This hydrangea is a personal favourite with some fond memories. I purchased it as a small flowering cutting from an honesty box plant sale on a walk in Suffolk. It was called ‘apple blossom’ but I can find no reference to such a variety -still I keep the name because it suits. When I left London I took a cutting from the original plant – it is a fast grower and will soon need yet another bigger pot.
