Never mind the show gardens: at Malvern it was the Floral Pavilion which just blew me away.
Every bit as good as bigger shows like Chelsea and Hampton Court, I was like a kid let loose in a sweetshop: actually I was entirely paralysed when I first went in as I just wanted everything I saw.
To save the bank balance I contented myself with taking photos of my very, very favourites. Well, mostly: I will admit three more scented geraniums and a Gillenia trifoliata somehow found their way into my bag.
So here were the ones that got away:
Camassia leichtlinii ‘Pink Selection’
Euphorbia dulcis ‘Chamaeleon’
(Claire Austin Hardy Plants)
Dicentra ‘Bleeding Hearts’
(Cath’s Garden Plants)
Epimedium ‘Amber Queen’
