Lovely to see some plants in winter at Wisley. It must be winter? It's struggling to pretend it's summer here
 
Giles do you remember the size of the Leprospermum? I had a very little one, small bun type which flowered beautifully then seeded but when I grew the seedlings they were comparatively enormous. There are a number of very small, named forms and I wonder have they been propagated from so-called witches' brooms. One I have acquired recently is called 'Lilliput' and is only 3 or 4 cms high and about 8 across so far, very tight and very floriferous.

Giles,
thank you for showing your pictures. That's a real boost and motivation. Now I have got plans for tomorrow, great to get away from all the Christmas stress. :) :) :)

Got a rather nice Pleione Wharfdale 'Pine Warbler' just coming into flower, picture tomorrow. ;D
