Thank you for showing us the garden, I'm afraid mine is altogether more floppy and random; both here, in Norfolk, and formerly in London I have a tendency to over plant. My plant choices are based on colour and shape (and simply, 'Ooh, I like that!). It is a pleasure to see a garden that is more thoughtfully designed

FG, your structures are brilliant - you are able to organise shapes like an architect. Would I be right in thinking most of your plants are perennials?

Fairy girl, your garden always looks so attractive and professional; any chance you would show us photos of more of it instead of tantalising glimpses?

What is this please?

Nut certainly isn't daft...and doesn't look it either

What is this please?

I put my nectaroscordum in groups of 3, 10 or 15 cm apart if I remember rightly and they are still going strong after several years in dry, poor soil. Don't know the other one, but baring in mind the size of the flower head (some are HUGE) would give you an idea about spacing.

What is this please?

Hopeful H, I've just looked up spicebush and it seems to have longer fruit and possibly different shaped leaves...but I'm leaving my options open

What is this please?

Snoodle, we all tried to stop her...someone wrestled her to the ground... it was all a blur after some miracle she survived...

What is this please?

Posted: 27/08/2015 at 21:04 we know it is not toxic in small quantities, what did it taste like?

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
