Viburnum tinus Laurustinus

Posted: 14 September 2012
Overall: Is pretty in winter and spring, but boring in the summer months. Our suddenly died for no reason after many years. We are going to replace it with another Vibernum but not a Tinus.

Rosa 'Zephirine Drouhin' Bourbon rose

Posted: 14 September 2012
Overall: I have mine in full sun and trained up a wigwam. I have had it about 3 or 4 years and get very few flowers from it in spite of mulching and feeding it well. Perhaps it does not like sea air, but I don't find it a very good "doer".

Stipa gigantea Giant feather grass

Posted: 14 September 2012
Overall: We grow this in our garden and it is beautiful. Unfortunately we live on the top of a hill approx 230 feet above sea level on the coast and sometimes summer gales can break the flags. However the older it gets and the more flags it has the better it is able to withstand the gales. Well worth growing.

Dierama pulcherrimum 'Slieve Donard Hybrids' Angel's fishing rod

Posted: 13 September 2012
Overall: I have this growing in a gravel bed with grasses and it is beautiful. Well worth growing. My only criticism is that once it has flowered it does look very untidy. I stake it and use garden twine to support the long strappy leaves.
