share your favourite plants. It could be an old faithful or new exciting variety. I am looking for inspiration.

    Pink echinacea: I have a 30' long s- shaped bed with them all along it. It takes my breath away every morning at this time of year.

    Changes every day, but I suppose my "desert island" plant would be a dark Delphinium. I just wish I could stake them more sympathetically.

    Ask me again tomorrow!!

    That's difficult as like Verdun I have so many but roses, poppies and aquilegia are among them. What are your favourites Newb?

    Got to be  really harsh here as I love loads but my garden stalwarts are Eucryphia glutinosa and Clethra barbinervis (which is in flower now and the perfume is just unbelievable) but I think its really hard to pick!

    Ooof! That's a tough one... for me it's plants which have associated memories:

    Daffodils, which remind me of my Mum, and Alstromeria, which remind me of my Wedding.

    My other faves are scented pelargoniums, orchids and Agapanthus.

    Ooh  - agree red Acers are awesome aym280. Everyone should have at least one Acer in a garden.

    That's a tough question but I think bluebells are my favourite, wish they flowered for longer though.
