Our pocket handerchief
« on: June 02, 2007, 04:46:54 PM »
Hi there,
Just wanted to let you know that next weekend Brian and I are off to Dumfries and GAlloway with the SRGC looking at gardens and this is what we are leaving behind.

Shelagh, some lovely stuff there. I particularly liked the gorgeous clump of Dianthus 'Eileen Lever'.

Shelagh,

Lovely plants but I am most taken by your comment that you had a lovely day as here it has been the most miserable day in ages, in fact the first day in weeks when I have not been out in the garden. I should, like you, have organised my photographs and posted a few. Instead I had the great pleasure of going out to shop for curtain material. Now, wasn't that a great treat.

Aye, but since I swallowed that spoon I can't stir.

Shelagh,
The  Saponaria 014.jpg is S. 'Bressingham Hybrid'. A hybrid between S. ocymoides, S. caespitosa and S. pumilio of garden orgin.

Nice plants Shelagh, especially the Phyteuma. Why don't alpine gardeners go into positive raptures about the little Saponarias? I think they're terribly under-rated, especially `Bressingham Hybrid' and `Olivana.' They are very fine plants which everyone should grow and gain much pleasure from them.

Thanks to you all for your kind comments and to Franz for his additional information.  By the way it's another lovely day here in Bury.

I somehow thought it was about Davidia involucrata? ::)
