A few pics from my place last year

I had a photographer come round a couple of times last year and she has just assembled this page of pictures on her website. She takes a cracking picture does Sarah!

Wonderful Paul. It's marvellous to see succulents growing in this country outside. You have a lovely spot. Real credit to you.

A lovely garden and I would love a good look round. Wonderful Agaves and there are so many beautiful Echiums. Did I see E wildprettii, there? My area is just too wet and cold for them and there is no space in the greenhouse, unfortunately.

Most enjoyable Paul, the Agaves are especially impressive. Thanks for posting.

Thank you!

Liz - I had Echium wildpretii flower here quite a few years ago and the bees made hybrids with pininana - and they are hybrid plants that have been coming up ever since. Some favour E. wildpretii, some pininana and I never quite know what is going to pop up! Last year I also flowered E. gentianoides for the first time so I am hoping a bit of that intense gentian colour goes into the mix. And I have replanted E. wildpretii, too. If you do ever find yourself in SE Essex you are welcome to have a wander - same to anyone.
