My dear friend nut beat me to it again, re; plant finder.
Folks. When out and about at these great gardens. Don't be afraid to get chatting with the garden staff. Some of us have noticed that the staff at Kew and Wisley seem to be afraid to stop and chat. However staff at some of these great places of interest simply love to chat accept words of thanks etc. I forget where it was. I was out with my daughter and grandchildren. There was a small area where you could sit and enjoy a cuppa. It was close to the greenhouses. Grandson Josh and Grampa, showed interest in the cacti. Within seconds. A couple of garden staff came up to us. It concluded with Josh shaking hands with the staff, and loads of thank you's. I had to build a green house to house the many cuttings the staff had there and then taken and given to Josh.
Jack. Check out plantfinder. If not, lets face it. Your'e not all that far from Lullingstone, like me. Pop back and try a bit of chat and charm
