Prizewinning. I'm sure.

 

 

Thinking of applying for National Collection status Jim

I can't even see the honeysuckle

I don't think this is a plant I'm familiar with but given a close up of stems, flowers  and overall manner of growth I might be able to put it in a family. 

It's a bit small and I can't enlarge it

You're right Jim, along wait for some that grow very well indeed, cowslips, primroses dog daisies and knapweeds. The surrounding agricultural desert only allows cereals, rape and beet to survive

Can you be brutal with a hosta?

I reckon they will as well

I've been brutal and never lost a hosta yet

I think they're osteospermums which may be the same as cape daisies

I won't buy a book simply because it's by a TV presenter but I won't snub them either. Just depends what the books about and if I think there's a better book on the same topic available.

 

I don't snub them, it's just that none of them have written my book yet

The series of books by Martyn Rix and Roger Phillips, Shrubs, Early Perennials, LatePerennials and lots more including the splendid Mushrooms which has helped me ID lots of the fungi around the garden, Very good for a browse if you're looking for a new plant.

Christopher Lloyd wrote some good books early on but some of the later ones were rather empty. Lots of pretty and not many words. A shame as CL was a master of words.

.Rather the opposite from you.I don't think there's a single TV presenter whose books I have bought
