I fancy that one, but I haven't found it yet. If I spot one at Hampton Court, I shall buy one. ;-)

Your going to Hampton Court, how lovely for you, would love to go one of these days, before I am too old lol

Yes, we're staying with our daughter at Richmond for two nights, and there's a boat from there to the gate at Hampton Court! This is to make up for missing the Malvern Show. I hope I can last out for a day there, but I'm told there are plenty of seats.

lucky you, Hampton Court! I'm going to buy some astrantias to grow with a pink rose, Queen of Sweden. Think the delicate flowers will suit. I've had to abandon my original plan (lavender little lady and gypsophila etc) as my front isn't as free draining as I thought it would be and hope astrantias will like it. It's east facing. I need a long flowering one...any advice?:-)

I think you might like the white ones, or, if the rose is a deep pink, look at 'Buckland'. You'll find it in my plant list.
