I bought this at crug farm a few years ago, it was collected one from some expedition. We were their first customers of the year and so I nabbed this beauty, out in a pot all winter.

Martin, what is a 'crug' farm?

MartinB MartinB 13 May 2010 22:07:39

Crug farm is a nursery in wales where they propagate plants from their constant expeditions to foreign parts. My plant has a collection number BSW J1608. Deb used to mildly sponsor expeditions which used to send her seeds, which is why I have to constantly battle against the most awful thugs that will take over the garden if I falter and faith Jacinta I am not young :-0

Interesting. Ah Martin, you are not THAT old. And anyway, if you are young at heart, that's what counts. :)

That really makes them special plants, well done you two.

That sounds exciting, being part of such an expedition. You mean there's worse than Japanese knotweed?
