I don’t think there are many plants that make me go weak at the knees.  I wish there were more. It’s plantings that are more likely to do if for me – great combinations of plants, bouncing off each other in such a way that all members of the troupe are glorified by the company. […]

It’s stupid how long I’ve wanted the rose named ‘Graham Thomas’. I don’t grow roses, as a rule.  I’ve no patience or tolerance trying to integrate them into the largely perennial planting that suits me best.   But last winter, my wife appropriated a bit of land near the clothesline, and decided that she’d put […]
