Finally, Tulipa tarda seedpods just about ready for collecting for the seed exchange!

Crevice Garden

Thanks Colin

It's great to see the Crevice Garden looking so good. It seems to have got a lot more established in the last year or so. Have you got any more views, or pictures of the plants we can see blooming there - I guess one is the Molktia, and possibly the Alyssum is in view too.

Having another look at the view - I can't see the Alyssum - the yellow plant looks like a Helianthemum.

But there is a campanula, and another paler blue plant, and several Dianthus (?).

Thanks Colin, I only seem to see the garden when I'm down at the Pershore Show in July. Good to see it at other, better, seasons.

Many thanks Colin. I hope to pay my first visit to Pershore for the Show in July.

Many thanks for the comments, good to know someone is looking! The Alyssum is growing in one of the covered frames by the alpine house. I will take a few more pictures from the crevice garden on Thursday.
