  1. Fried Egg Plant ~ I was once told it's impossible to rid your garden of it. With hard work and diligence, I proved them incorrect.

  2. Limnanthes douglasii: Never fails to amuse me that this and the Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) are both named in honour of Scottish plant hunter David Douglas. Ironically for the man who introduced a whole range of pines to the UK the tree's Latin name refers to one of his rivals. Small compensation to be given the poached egg plant. (He also introduced the Flowering currant and Californian poppy)

  7. So lovely, especially the Aquilegia. I'll be planting 'Barlow Mix' in the garden this week but it's anyone's guess which colour(s) will pop up.
