Even the best get it oh so wrong!


To all those keen gardeners out there. I realised my great big, huge, faux pas as soon as I pressed “publish”. I could argue I’d done it on purpose to check you were paying attention – like – spot the deliberate mistake. Mistake it most certainly was and I will bear the embarrassment like a man (you know what I mean).

The stipa isn’t a stipa it’s a phalaris! This error on my part, I accept is pay back from the garden fairies for my not mowing the lawn, or possibly the fact that I am old and the brain is as worn out as the old body :-(

I am absolutely fine knowing that any one following this will be laughing their socks off at my expense. I deserve it, indeed, I will become a better person (gardener) for it!

P.s. The fuchsia Chilli Red is sold under licence by R A Meredith trading as Blooms (of Bressingham). I have also seen it on the internet with Simply Seeds and Plants. Though it is our baby, we aren't allowed to sell it because of the licence thing. We have Mummy plant and a couple of babies but that's all :-)
