Nemesia Wisley Vanilla

..there seems to be several of these Vanilla clones around now...I just bought one called 'Vanilla Lady'... perhaps not quite the scent of Wisley Vanilla... but good enough...I don't think it's the same variety under another name....but I would hardly know the difference..

Shrub ID please.

..I think the original photo of KEF's is Deutzia gracilis 'Nikko'.... I saw one the other day, it was fabulous...  it grows more wider than tall... see what you think...

..I quite like Echinacea's...don't know if you do, but there are a couple of yellow ones, including the new 'Aloha'...available up north from Larch Cottage... or the 'Sombrero Lemon Yellow'... available on eBay....   the first one has a very long flowering season, so I read.... I'd like that... but not everyone's cup of tea...

Clematis ID please

...additionally, another way to check if you have the right one is look at the filaments and anthers....on this one they should be creamy white filaments with yellow anthers.... according to the website...I've not grown it...

Hostas in general White Feather Hosta in particular

Posted: 13/05/2014 at 01:13

...I expect some of you will be wanting the very latest must have Hosta....namely the one and only...'Andy Murray'.... to be launched at Chelsea shortly...  the colour is supposed to represent the Saltire..namely blue with white edge [plus a bit of gold in it to represent his gold medal].... but to my eye it looks more blue/green with creamy yellow edge...but never mind... I find many of them look rather similar....
