Every bit as good as bigger shows like Chelsea and Hampton Court, I was like a kid let loose in a sweetshop: actually I was entirely paralysed when I first went in as I just wanted everything I saw.
To save the bank balance I contented myself with taking photos of my very, very favourites. Well, mostly: I will admit three more scented geraniums and a Gillenia trifoliata somehow found their way into my bag.
So here were the ones that got away:
Camassia leichtlinii 'Pink Selection'
Euphorbia dulcis 'Chamaeleon'
(Claire Austin Hardy Plants)
(Mary Green at The Walled Garden, Lancs)
Hosta 'White Feather'
(actually, I didn't want this one, but I thought it was proof if proof were needed that breeders always push it that little bit too far)
Dicentra 'Bleeding Hearts'
(Cath's Garden Plants)
Epimedium 'Amber Queen'
(Chris Cooke Plants)
