Oh exciting - a bit of gardening archaeology - the most exciting thing we have at Stonelands is the trench where the mains electricity comes in - but I wouldn't try excavating that!!

Funnily enough I was thinking about this today at and wished I had a drone aerial view of the gardens in April and one now to compare how dry things are - never seen lawns like this so early in the summer!!

All good here Toby, if a little dry (but where isn't it) even the Dawlish Water looks like it's giving up. If I get a spare peice of Musella I'll send it your way!

Never heard of Badgers attacks on bananas, sweetcorn yea, not bananas! Interesting. Skimmiensis definitely less hardy than basjoo but I find it regrows more vigorously. Going to try Musella outside, but not for much hope for that!

I grow M. skimmiensis as well outside - although it got hit by frost this year, it regrew through it and now splendid!

Hedychium densiflorum ‘Sorung’ is usually one of the earliest into flower. Much bigger flowers than Assam orange and nicely scented. This one has flowers that are a bit fleeting, open a week, but a big clump keeps going.

One of the great things about growing big-leaved is when the shines through them, like through this Xanthosoma - it's like nature's stain-glass window
