Nut, on RHS site, re Akiba it says it produces seed head if 'pollinated by another clone'. I expect that makes more sense to you than it does to me.

What's the star in your garden right now

Sorry I'm so late posting pics of West Acre. It was lovely to see the TWIGS again. It was very overcast so pics are a little bit colourless.

 First the stately home in the grounds, and I'm sure there is a mad woman in the attic - it just has that look

 The plant Nursery that is always there

 We all loved this huge old brick wall.

 I'm not a huge fan of grasses, but these were spectacular.

As far as I understand, we were there on Autumn Colour Day, which means that lots of other small Nurseries turn up and lay out stands with their, often, very specialist plants.

I'll bring Red Carmargue rice salad with Feta cheese, caramelised red onions, peppers and toms all from the garden, Celeriac and carrot remoulade with homemade mayonnaise, + Fruit salad. Have just realised I have nothing except an empty wine bottle to bring water in.

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

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