Above are some of the plants I have bought this week. Our garden is tiny. There is no where for these plants to go but still I buy them. Earlier in the week the plant sale at U3A offered cheap but well-grown plants, so a candelabra primula and the golden variegated grass Hakonechloa macra aureola along with some house leeks and hellebore seedlings could not be ignored. It would have been rude. At a wet, windy Powerham Castle Garden Festival yesterday, solace from the dire conditions was taken from a venus fly trap, Dodecatheon meadia, Tulipa linifolia, Euphorbia x martinii and a South Africa restio Calopsis paniculata (3m tall, what’s your problem?) Oh, I nearly forgot the variegated form of creeping Fuchsia procumbens. Of course a spot will be found for them, there always is somewhere. Plant buying is a drug, and it feels darned good!
