Talkback: Gardening holidays
Sounds idyllic, Adam, except I get seasick even in harbour! But you have reminded me to go and sniff the Eucryphia at the Botanic Garden. It is a delight at this time of year and the blossom smells lovely. I am busy making a fernery in dry shade (under a eucalyptus tree) and so am looking in all the shady areas in the gardens I visit for inspiration. So far I have learned that foxgloves, yellow poppies, bluebells, Heuchera "Lime Marmalade", and many ferns are suitable. Research for your garden once you know it well is so satisfying.
