Doubt there will be any Hepaticas on show on Sunday. Wrong season.


Dianthus and Campanulas are the most likely to be in flower at this time of year.


This is not really a show as such it is more an opportunity for people to see that Alpines are not difficult or rare or hard to grow or come by. They are for everyone. Ideal plants for the smaller gardens of today as you can fit an awful of them into a smaller space. AND, they are not al Spring flowering things either.

what is this plant called

It is a real seed weed here. Grows even in the cracks between the path and the house.

Iris rules

Posted: 15/06/2016 at 11:04

Iris Pacific Coast types need a damp, but well drained soil in full sun. They come from the Pacific coastal area of the USA so they are used to warm Summers with a certain amount of water from mist rather than wet conditions.

A little liquid soap on the brush would help too.

Creeping pest I.D. and help please?

It looks very much like Pearlwort (Sagina procumbens). Roundup will kill it, eventually. A flamegun will burn off the flowers and seed heads, but the plant seems to survive burning. This is what is known as a primary coloniser. It is one of the  first plants to grow on newly uncovered sites.
