If it is Dawn it has a very strong honey like scent
Just remembered "plantsmans preference" in Norfolk were very good too.
sounds like a good haul Lyn - i love phlox
alpine house photos:
Just realised that i failed miserably to get the labels in - so you will just have to be content with the pretty flowers!!!
Well apart from the shrew, there were some lovely iris/crocus affairs, and some mini nerines. I took photos for you - so i suppose i will have to detach my rear from the sofa and go upload them for you ...... Might take some time ......
Those tyre planters are great - who do you get to cut them like that??
when you talked about tyre planters before i thought you meant that you were making a tower of tyres and planting inside them - your way is far more ingenius
Love it Macavity
Had a lovely afternoon wandering round Wisley - discovered some parts i have never been to before - the meadows behind the glasshouses, the arboretum and the trial fields. Looks like they have just finished a three year trial of phlox paniculata - one of my favourites - will be interesting to see what they have found. Made a special visit to both alpine houses for Woody - had the old one completely to myself apart from a tiny shrew scurrying around - v sweet!
Morning all (although nearly afternoon - i love a good Sunday morning lie - in)
Wisley here i come, for some Christmas shopping and a wander round the gardens - hope the sun breaks through here later.
Agree with Crocus and Hardy's. Have also been very pleased with Burncoose, Sarah Raven and Seagate Irises. Ashridge trees were excellent too
Patty - i think the 10 programmes are every night for two weeks. I will be taping them to stretch them out
