Treats from the RHS

Two trips out of my garden this week – one on Tuesday to the RHS Great Spring Show at Westminster which was choc-a-bloc with treasures.  Mindful that whatever I bought would need to be transported home on the train I limited myself to a white flowered, variegated Honesty (Lunaria).  I had this in my previous garden many years ago but it died out, so high time to reintroduce it again.

This morning saw me at the RHS gardens in Wisley for the second day of the Auricula Festival.  I love these flowers, the Victorians had the right idea in creating ‘theatres’ to display them to their very best.  It will be a while before I have anything resembling a collection, but I’ve started it off with two choice specimens.  Auriculas at Wisley

About Sara Davison

I've been gardening as long as I can remember; initially as a child, learning from my mother, and then with each successive garden I've owned, I've expanded my knowledge and my plant collection. Starting Spring 2014 I'm taking my first steps as a flower farmer, growing British flowers for cutting on an acre of rented farmland in the Surrey Hills.
