They still have the birds of prey. The same chap used to do them at Chilham Castle over 30 years ago. We took the children there when they were small.

I saw that P & P, loved it, also love the Colin F. one.

Hi folks, can you name these please :)

Agree with escallonia, but 2nd pic looks more like Acanthus Mollis. Does it look like this acanthus?

I have grown agastache, but not always successfully. One year they were Apricot Sprite that I grew from small bought plants, they were super. Then I tried a purpley one but it didn't thrive. I've tried sowing them but they didn't germinate. This year I have a pink one called Heather Queen bought as plug plants. They are still tiny, have only just started growing and I planted them out in May. They rarely last the winter here. What am I doing wrong?

Is that black print meant to be a link to an enlargement? I only get writing. Looks pretty, shame it won't enlarge.

No, addict, I live in Dordogne, France. We go to England on holiday! Went in June and visited gardens. We'll be back in September. We stay in a family holiday flat in Eastbourne. Actually, the journey to Wisley was a bit of a nightmare, there was an accident on the M25 so we couldn't even get on to it because of the queues so we went by country roads. Should have taken 1 1/2 hours but it took 3h20. Hope no one was hurt. Wisley was lovely and had changed quite a bit since I last went nearly 40 years ago.

Morning all. Done some watering. Huge bramble to cut out of shrub bed, weeding and balckcurrants and raspberries to pick. Bumper year for raspberries.

Has anyone been anywhere yet, any photos to share? We went to Groombridge Place as well for a day out with grandchildren, but the garden (herbaceous bit) was a bit scruffy. Note the huge wisteria.
