Wow, Giles, your shots really show the scale of the new crevice garden... it is quite some size. :o

  I'm intrigued by the possibility that those cunning folk at Wisley are planning to make a genuine ice-house  with those blocks of ice.... is there no innovation those folks won't try?  ::) ;D ;)

 Brave of that erigeron to have some flowers at this time, it must have felt the bulbs were outdoing it!

I think it was a bit of on the spot creativity, rather than anything else. Some of the blocks were just dumped in a heap.

Wow some lovely pictures there. Oh I wish I lived close to Wisley. I would never be out of there.
Do you think if I wrote a letter to Santa a might get a Daubenya marginata bulb in my stocking.
Thanks for showing us the pictures, really enjoyed them.  8)
