Back in March we were kindly given a few scions of Notholithocarpus densiflorus f. attenuato dentatus.Another friend was able to get us a few N. densiflorus seedlings to use as rootstocks, but these were just self seeded & pulled up from under a large plant. We didn't have high hopes but we did get a few to take!
This Wisteria has more names than you can shake a stick at but according to Peter Valder there is only one Double Flowering form of Wisteria & the most valid cultivar name is 'Violacea Plena'. Other names it is commonly sold under are 'Black Dragon', 'Kokuryu' & 'Yae Kokuryu'.
The little bright yellow flowers of the Wire-Netting Bush always brighten up the day! We have had three worse that normal winters in a row now & while many so called hardy plants in our garden have died this has continued to do well.
Our Trachycarpus fortunei has lived in the same 36" Cedar Box for the last 6 or 7 years, Since the box was falling to bits & we didn't want to pot it into an even bigger box we figured it was time to plant it in the garden. Getting it from the back of the house to the front garden was no easy task though!
