I went to the open day and had a really good time. The garden IS small but crammed fully of interesting plants. I managed to take a few snaps

The aeoniums were great along with the cream scones!

So much of the garden must have to be brought in for winter, their house must be like a jungle for 6months of the year!

I saw this on GW and was VERY impressed!

I was also VERY disappointed in GW that they failed to ask the key questions as to just how they have overwintered all those plants as I've got mates in that area who lost TONNES of plants.

All credit to them though, a superb garden, and not their fault the GW gave the impression that its easy.
Most wanted list - Any Young Trachycarpus and/or fern.

I did see a couple of good sized dead Dicksonia antarctica but one was alive and looking well.
