Buzy - Amazing picture, I think working there you never quite notice the beauty of things, you just know you need to clip the hedge or mulch around the nepeta, without taking much notice. Did you see the great big pond in the italian garden? During last September two people fell in it in one day, mustn't laugh, but it is a bit funny
Verd - my nan has a friend who lives on shoreham beach, which is basically a miniature island built in the sea, and she's got a magnolia, think it's 'Susan', but could be wrong. It has been known for the flowers to last only a few days in rough weather though, although have been assured it's over 35 years old, but she is 83 and losing it a bit bless her.
Star - What's stopping you getting a pond? Ill dig one for you
KEF - that's such a nice picture, love how the grounds been decorated aswell!
