    The ravishing (and tender) Silk Hibiscus from Western Australia

    I’m gradually becoming more disciplined about resisting the temptation to buy plants that require conditions that I can’t supply, but this didn’t stop me  admiring the luminous beauty of the  Silk Hibiscus and the magnificent Giant Honeysuckle on the Old Walled Garden stand. Their website is in development at the moment but you can request a brochure by telephone on 01789 720788.

    The Giant Burmese Honeysuckle lives up to its name – each flower is about 15cm long.
