The potty gardener

I remember months ago that someone asked where they could find plants with a certain name. Well being unable to sleep I've been looking through all sorts of things and came across a fuchsia Beverley- this got me wondering what other plants I could have with my name. Can anyone remember where I can find this out please?

 


 Just thought I'd show how lovely the fuchsia is.

Thank you Geoff for the link. I have the same name as the Queen and the Queen Mum so I found 64 plants! My children gave me clematis montana "Elizabeth" years ago for Mothers Day and I still have it.

I am currently trying to make a family border.

I went onto the RHS search engine typed in several * and the name and had some good results. Even found one with my real name, What a surprise.

It does not mean the plants are readily available though.

Thank you everyone. I will have to see what I can get hold of- and will fit in my tiny little garden

You can also buy a rose and have it named for someone - lovely for certain circumstances. A friend of ours at work died and we had a rose named for her, and gave it to her Mum - she was thrilled to bits with it.  Quite the opposite of what you want, but god non-the-less

Do you know the firm for a rose Bookertoo ?

'country garden roses' is the one we used, but I think there may be others - maybe not all roses?  Guess work ony that last!

Thanks, it gave me an idea to solve a name problem
