A lovely thing. I bought mine from the 'nearly dead' section at the GC, and it still cost me more than a fiver a couple of years ago.

There is a glitch at the moment which the team are trying to fix.  I'm sure someone will be in touch with you when they're back in the office.

My pleasure Richard - I've been lucky to have lived not too far from Bressingham for most of my life and have watched the gardens develop and go through several phases over the years.  They really are looking very good at the moment 

Lantana - the label by that plant says Fascicularia Bicolour - it's a bromeliad - think someone suggested it for someone's garden the other day ... can't think who it was but it was to replace a Clematis 'Avalanche' that wasn't happy in a sunny spot surrounded by paving .......... 

 Bressingham Nursery only sell to the trade online - the garden centre there was taken over by Wyevale when Alan Bloom died - but I couldn't come away without a plant could I? Would've been letting the side down a bit, wot? 

My Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm' in the new Sunny Bed is looking fantastic at the moment (next to Aster 'Little Carlow') so I couldn't resist a slightly smaller version Rudbeckia 'Little Gold Star' to carry that wonderful golden glow nearer to the front of the bed.

We didn't this time - there were quite a few family groups with little ones, so we left it to them and just watched while we had our ice cream - we had several goes on the gallopers at Thursford just a few days ago.

I've started a thread for our day at Bressingham - sorry that a few of the photos are a bit blurry - a few raindrops got on the lens - but I think you can see the wonderful colours and textures.
