Could someone please explain to me how John Innes gets its name?

The composts were developed at the John Innes Institute, named after one John Innes, a nineteenth century property and land dealer in the City of London.

Love Bluebells.

Me too, Star....just thought I would try to post something cheerful during this rubbish weather.

Edit - they are just a couple of miles from me.

 On the subject of flowers on a black background, this is the stunning effect that can be achieved with a simple bunch of tulips.

I didn't take this particular shot.

Since starting this thread I've picked-up on this 'tweet' he has made.

"Despite water stretching from the back door as far as the eye can see, it does look wonderful. Suddenly living in a borrowed lake."

Anyone have any news about Monty's Herefordshire garden?

I know it is subject to flooding at the best of times, so goodness knows how things are at present.

He 'tweets' quite a lot, so I thought he may have mentioned it.
