Glad you all enjoyed it. We went on the 10th July and had a lovely day, weather was warm and sunny. We'd met Dove the day before in a Suffolk pub. I hope you don't mind if I put some photos here too. I also went on the carousel, OH took the photo from the horse in front.
I'm glad it went well for you, Joybell.
Well done Nut. I was thinking more on the lines of autumn leaf colour.
Me too. As Verdun likes grasses have looked up masses and not one has an Irish County name.
We were there on 10th July. I posted some pics here, and a bit further on are some pics from Beth Chatto's garden. http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/gardens-we-have-visited-2015/683926-2.html
Oh gosh, Dove, does that mean reading every post on today's forum?!!
The only Irish county that I can think of that is plantable is Cork, but Cork is a big county. Unless it's an anagram as well and I'm hopeless at anagrams.
Willow is commonly used in Holland and aspirin comes from willow, which is why I chose it. But in Scotland, where Bushman comes from, alder or Scottish birch is used more commonly.
Hello Dave. That's a huge difference already.
I planted mine in the same bed, but in rows. I labelled them carefully, then we had a gale and the labels blew away! Autumn is a good time to plant then they will be established by next year, and will fruit.
