Just watched Gardeners World and thought I post a couple of plants they featured tonight. I'd just taken these after the heavy rain we had today. I had 2 nearly empty 100 litre water butts at the weekend. Tonight they're overflowing. Iris sibirica, and Geum Mrs Bradshaw providing a good companion to the slightly drab Oriental Poppy Patty's Plum - complete with rain drops.

It's a red hazel, quercus and grows like the klappers, sprouts endlessly from the base as well as sprouting all the nuts I can't find.  

Making a note in my book not to buy a red hazel 

Artjak, I've never seen the attraction of the red/pink Valerian either

I've always hankered after a walled garden Patty. I sometimes think I'll pull up the hedge at the bottom of the garden (it's privet) and replace it with a wall so I could grow more fan or cordon fruit, but then the birds love the hedge so I keep changing my mind. 

If you could have any plant / tree in your garden

That's odd Sue, I have a hazel nut and don't get seedlings from it. However, my neighbour's allowed a sycamore seedling to grow . Those seedlings are driving me nuts. Turn your back and another one pops up!
