Today was the annual plant sale in Sudbury. I'd never been before, and nearly didn't go this year because of the weather, but I'm very glad I made the effort. Friends and neighbours had often told me how good it was, but I have to admit I was half expecting a selection of bedding plants and not much else. How very wrong I was. There were many specialist nurseries from around this area of Suffolk and Essex with a good range of unusual plants. I came back with these:
The Jovellana isn't fully hardy so will have to be moved into the greenhouse over the winter. It, and the Chiastophyllum and Thalictrum, came from Priory Plants, a nursery I first came across at the NCCPG plant heritage fair at Helmingham Hall last year (where I also bought some wonderful Cedric Morris Irises which I will share with you when they bloom).
Now all I have to do is find the right homes for them all!
