Added heat!

We have added more red to our Hot Border for extra zing! This extra red was provided by a crocosmia called “Walbertons Red”. The “Walberton” part of the name refers to the nursery in Arundel, West Sussex who introduced it. The nursery’s best-know introductions are probably Lavender Silver Edge and Scabious Butterfly Blue. We also bought Crocosmia “Walbertons Yellow” and both these crocosmias are richly coloured and flower strongly.

About greenbenchramblings

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
