This is what the RHS says -

Brugmansia were once known as Datura, but that name is now used only for certain annual or short-lived plants with similar but less pendulous flowers.

Hello Sue. So sorry about your files and photos. I suppose you didn't have a back up. Best to put them on a disc, I think, my OH deals with it.

I hope you enjoy Cornwall, there are some lovely gardens there. Thank you for keeping in touch.

There is a little nursery near Eastbourne that has several varieties, but that's no good for Verdun! Harlow Carr garden in Yorkshire had them too, even further for Verdun!

WW, or do you prefer Woody, when I water pots I don't use the sprinkly thing either, doesn't give a good enough soak, but I find just the end of the hose is too forceful as my hoses have Gardena joining things on them, so I put the end of the hosepipe into a watering can without a rose and water from the can pulling the hose pipe with me.

The house sitter didn't water the roses in pots enough and they have suffered a bit.

We wanted to see a garden near Worcester last week, but it had closed to the public 5 years ago although it was still on Google. So we thought we'd go to Spetchley Park, but it was Monday and the garden was closed.  Went and wandered round Tewkesbury instead.

We went to a garden called Hergest Croft which had some interesting and rare trees. The rhodies and azaleas were over. There was a big kitchen garden, but it was a bit strange as, instead of putting the herbaceous borders and rose garden near the house they were some way away in the kitchen garden.

 When we were in Shrewsbury we saw the garden that Percy Thrower created in the public park.

Morning all. I'm earlier than usual as OH has gone to meet his BIL and 2nd wife (OH's sister died) from the airport.

Looks like being a lovely day.
