..this site might be of interest, expensive I imagine if this is what you are looking for, I'm not sure... however, a young man on photo no. 10 looks to have taken the 'balls on stem' rather seriously, if you get my


help me make this tropical with hardy plants

..if you can afford them, buy plants called 'Fargesia', there are a few varieties... 'Rufa' is my favourite or 'Jumbo'... they are hardy and give a tropical effect will little effort... give them a bit of time though.... non-invasive.. no trouble... grasshoppers like to rest on them in summer...

..most of my garden is like this, I also have a 'beach' effect.  There are so many plants to choose from....  don't need to stick with maritime ones especially but Silene maritima 'Robin Whitebreast' flowers all summer if sheared occasionally...  Helianthemum's look really good on shingle...

...either...I've got it in a border... full shade.... it's very dull most of the year, coming into flower shortly...

..I went to Anglesey Abbey a couple of years ago.... snowdrops all out but they do tend to all look the same to me.. I think you have to get very close to detect real differences in some of them...

I preferred the winter garden walk...there is such a dramatic surprise as you turn a corner that lives long in the memory...

my Daphne J. Postil is just coming into flower...masses of looking forward to that...
