Ceanothus is soo susceptible to this - I think its cause they have the genetics to just suddenly die on you what ever the conditions! Shame really as it such a nice shrub!!

Spent the afternoon harvesting at today, think I managed to get more on the floor than in the trug - oh well more for the pixies

Lets enjoy before the torrential rain of the weekend - although next week looks fine and sunny - great because I have a week off and I think a visit to is on the cards - the Acers should be colouring up?

They are on Scilly apparently - still fantastic looking plant especially when they flower!

Yeah real shame - the Minack planting was really starting to mature nicely - but its always a risk with some tenders.

They definitely lost all there Silvers there, as did the Minack Theatre, and lots of Banksias - although some toughed it out and alot of regrowth. Bananas weren't protected as far as I could tell - and they came through minimal damage looking really great.

Not what the owner was telling the group I was with - they also had Hedychium maiximum outside all the time to - I did raise my eyebrow a little!

You should offer them to Tremenheere down near Penzance, when I was there two weeks ago I was amazed to find they grow them outside all year round!!

More collection at - this time Baptisia australis - like miniature broad beans. Not easy to germinate but when the seed is free worth a go!! (Note to self: don't sort seeds outside in the wind πŸ’¨)
