Yes, it has been a bit more like winter the past few days and nights, but we haven’t really suffered very much as yet, it has to be said. Still, it was a bit of a surprise to find a group of Crocosmia Emily McKenzie looking very floriferous for the time of year. Elsewhere a Stokesia Blue Star was also looking rather pleased with itself.
On another note, we have started giving the website its winter overhaul, deleting those items that we won’t be growing next season and then uploading details of all those new plants that we will be growing. And perhaps we will get round to keeping our promise, made in September, of featuring at least some of them here!
