Thats enough introduction - on with the plants!

Astonishingly, after the rain we have had, things have started to dry out again, but the garden is looking green and fresh. The new herbaceous border has erupted with weeds, and evenings are being spent yanking out yards and yards of creeping stinging nettle stems (and there is an inevitable price to pay). This update is a bit later than intended - the last two days have been taken up with a summer cold, and all the engineering works required to render safe the tsunami of snot. Hedychium are growing at an astonishing rate, and space will have to be found (where is that wretched TARDIS when you need it?)
To find particular groups of plants I grow, click on the genus name in the table above. Click on the "Index" box at the top of the page for the full list.
I have a lot of good intentions when it comes to updating this site, and I try to keep a note about what is going on, if you are interested.
