Favourite biscuit?

Nothing to beat a nice bit of shortbread.  Have been busy gardening as the weather has been lovely here today so no tea and biscuits for me.

ID plant please

Hi there. I think it is a Leucothoe.  Plant in shade or semi-shade in a moist peaty soil and it should make a good recovery. Good luck.

Finally found out the origin of Brin.  It was given to Lady Erskine by Dick Trotter (of Trotter's Merlin fame) from his garden S/W of Inverness.  He was a great friend of E.A. Bowles.  A lovely Galanthus very strong in stature.  Hoping it does well in my garden.

Can anyone give me any feedback on the origin of Galanthus Brin. Unable to find it in any Snowdrop reference books.  I would appreciate any info. Thank you.
