I remember Adrian Bloom's Foggy Bottom in its early days, all conifers and heathers - beautiful in the right light at the right time of year, but when I saw it at other times it did nothing for me. Now Adrian has removed most of the heathers and replaced them with grasses and perennials. However gardening, as with everything else, goes in cycles - I wonder if it's time for heathers to have their day again?
Things I used to grow that I don't grow now ...................... auriculas - gorgeous floury little jewels - they're on my list for another year. Burnet roses - I once inherited a garden in which grew a little treasure - http://www.classicroses.co.uk/products/roses/burnet-double-white/ isn't that absolutely gorgeous? I have to find a spot for one of those here
