Thanks LG - it was exciting waiting for the bud to open and see what I'd got
This was a surprise .... I bought a pack of gladdies called Lakeland from Wilkies earlier this year. Thought they would look 'cool' with the silver of the abies lasiocarpa Compacta whilst it is still small. Think Wilkies must have got their stock from T & M ... no idea what these are, but deffo not Lakeland
Twixt optimist and pessimist the difference is droll, the optimist sees the doughnut whilst the pessimist sees the hole
Goodness that is weird LG - I wonder what would grow if you saved seeds from it!
I'd almost be afraid to try Tig but as it's growing at the allotment my intention was to let them all set seeds for the birds. If they don't go all soggy I'll see if I can get some and give them a go perhaps.
