Far Reaches Farm

Last Friday I finally got around to making my first long overdue visit to see Sue Milliken & Kelly Dodson at Far Reaches Farm. Far Reaches boasts an incredible array of rare & unusual plants many of them originally from wild collected seed with provenance. The place is a plant lovers paradise! Here are a few of the weird & wonderful plants that caught my eye.

A game of conkers anyone :^)

Last Friday I had the opportunity to head North to visit Dan Hinkley at his Windcliff Garden & then on to visit Kelly & Sue at Far Reaches Farm. Great plants & great hospitality at both places! At Dan's I got to see my first ever germinating seedling of Aesculus wangii, what a monster!
