Crambe Cordifilia

I'm sure I've seen it for sale at National Trust properties, where they sell cuttings etc from the plants in their gardens - our local one is Blickling Hall so it was probably there. 

And look here they seem to stock it 

Has anyone got any snow yet?

Lovely  photos Rain 

What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 17/01/2013 at 06:29

Yes, we've still got deep snow - about 8" - and it's bitterly cold - can't tell you how cold - I think a Christmas pressie from MIL might be a garden thermometer, but as we didn't get to hers for Christmas due to Norovirus, I've not got my pressie yet 

However, from this it looks as if we're in for some more soon, and those of you a bit west from here are going to get more than us from the looks of it   Good luck and stay warm and safe.

Took me 4hrs 15 mins to get home last night - 7 miles!!!  A really heavy blizzard at lunchtime caused Total Gridlock in and around Norwich for the rest of the day.  Son lives down in Suffolk Coastal - he couldn't believe it!!!

Goodness me - what detailled photographs!  You certainly don't do things by halves 

It's a big greenhouse - did you keep a record of your harvest?

Google Everlasting Sweet Peas - most seedsmen sell them - they're pretty but have no scent

Good morning folks!  Haven't read back so don't know what you've all been up to - it took me 4 hrs 15 mins to travel 7 miles home yesterday evening - Norwich totally gridlocked!  Will be working from home today.
