I was blaming an ad for drink driving which ad blocker had failed to deal with

All looks OK from page 2 backwards but most of page 1 is missing for me.

Maybe it's got  chicken sh... in it

honey fungus

Actiferm doesn't claim to cure honey fungus. It's advertised as a soil improver, to promote healthy plant growth.

Healthy plants are less susceptible to disease.


Chinese latern ? Invasive in Cornwall

I saw some in a pot at an open garden, they looked great. You could have them in a prominent position when the seed capsules colour up and more out of the way the rest of the year

Yes, they're invasive.  I wouldn't put them in a small garden or  with plants that can't compete.

I have Hydrangea anomala ssp anomala 'Winter Surprise' 

Reliably evergreen, hardy, goes reddish in winter but  not yet clinging on after 3 years.

I still prefer the basic H. anomala, deciduous but with attractive flowers, dried heads and bark. 

I'd not have the parthenocissus, not a long enough season of interest as well as the invasive tendency.

Versicolor does seem bit small doesn't it

I think that's because we get used to all those large flowered cultivars and hybrids. 

I like species plants

Fishy, I think you should take the Primula veris out of the boggy bit

swap it for some of the Lady's Smock.

Not sure about the vulgaris either. It doesn't like hot and dry but I've never seen it in a bog. But we don't have bogs round here so that might be why.

Hi Addict

I like that polemonium. Not exciting but pleasing in a quiet way
