    echiums in the floral marquee at malvern show

    This wonderful display of echiums stopped me in my tracks – a bit of me longed to buy E. wildpretii and E.fastuosum but having nurtured a fastuosum for a few years only to have it die without flowering and read about the measures needed to keep wildpretii alive, I resisted and spent my money on some rather lovely (and much tougher) hardy geraniums instead.
