I saw Rebecca at the Malvern Spring Show last year, but I couldn't take plants back to France on Ryanair. I've searched for it when we went by car and I've searched here in France. No luck

What sort of red would you describe Rebecca as.  Checked on internet and it comes up with everything from bright red to dark burgundy.

 

I'm sorry to hear that BL. I got mine from Taylors 

Yvie,  Fairy is right ofc, It's best in a sheltered area, out of harsh sunlight. Let me go look for a good photo from my collection,  brb

Exciting 

I had very few before last year, now they are my guilty pleasure  Rebecca is probably my favourite because of the colour although she's expensive but definitely a go-er

I dream of being able to cut the grass.

If you love Niobe, try C. Rebecca, the colour stunning. Viticella Black Prince is another fave of mine.

 

I already have Rebecca and the Viticella Black Prince  and I concur 

nipped to B&Q for Levington's compost after dropping my son off at the station, they've got their spring plants in so a Clematis Constance fell in my trolley

Planted my new cordiline when I got back, so excited about this plant as I've been desperate for a second one for ages and have had the perfect spot for it for quite a few years. Trouble is I could never find one that was a decent size until yesterday, overgrown and half price from the garden centre's chuck it out section, proving it's hardiness in their exposed conditions.

It's only a regular Cordiline,  but you know when you've always wanted one in a perfect spot...happly bunny now

Been sorting through my cold frames this morning, potting on things obviously in need, chucking out what hasn't survived and pinching out lavender cuttings.

also rejigging areas of border, moving a very large fern and my prize Pinus Mugo which was labeled as dwarf and most assuredly is not  . Surprisingly gorgeous from my kitchen window
