Thanks for all your suggestions.  I'll probably go with Deschampsia cespitosa for my border, but I'll see how I can use the 'wilder' grasses in other parts of the garden. 

hi jim

i am glad you mentioned Briza media, my daughter gave me a small bunch ofdried flowers with that grass when she was about ten,

many years later i scattered the grass seed. it grew and has self set for several years. i was amazed as the seed was so old but it looks so dainty in the border.

Ah, that's a nice story. It's so nice to have plants that means something to us especially with such a nice plant and it's native.

I've got a Acer my grandad bought me when I was 18. I won't tell you how old it is.

Sentiment in the garden is so important.

Thought I'd post a couple of pics I took at RHS Wisley last weekend - it was a glorious Winter's day and the grasses/seed pods looked so beautiful. Proof that this lot even look stunning in Winter!

Looks like you had a memorable visit. Lovely.

Thanks Jim - it was glorious. And for the first time, I got to see everything calmly and thoroughly without kids in tow - even better!
