Last night I went to the Wexford Garden Club talk in Enniscorthy where James Alexander Sinclair was talking and as always bumped into two garden.iers!  It was good to see you Paddy and Mary last night.

I thought the talk was very amusing, he is a real character and had me smiling the whole time.  Not sure I learnt anything though as I could not catch most of the names of the plants he mentioned!  One he did mention was Persicaria Polymorpha which I had only written down two weeks ago on my wish list as Jimi Blake had also mentioned it as one of his favourites.  Do any of you have it, it is yellowy in colour and very very tall!  Another I liked was a Perennial Digitalis Parviflora.

The last picture on the screen he showed was a Penguin!  Glad I went and when I got home, guess what more snow had fallen even though there was not a drop in Enniscorthy!

This was a great buy last year, I wanted it to put in a pot on the patio.  When I was replanting it in the pot I divided it and put this piece that is in the picture in the ground.  It has done really well in the ground but the one in the pot is very battered as it was in a windy spot!

I did not think it would be so hardy, hopefully it will flower this summer!

Euphorbia Wulfenii

Euphorbia Wulfenii

I bought this Euphorbia Wulfenii in the Autumn and unfortunately left it in its pot outside until yesterday, shame on me!  It looks a little sad now with only green foliage at the ends of the stems, after reading up on it I am guessing I will have to leave it be until the Autumn and then cut it back. 

I know a few of you have this Eurphorbia can you post a photo of what it should look like at this time of year.  Thank you.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

While on the subject of Euphorbias I found this one two years ago, it was teeney tiny and was in a pot someone gave me with something else and I was sure it was something I should keep, when it got bigger I realised it was a Eurphorbia.  It is looking good now but don't know the name!
