I am completely immersed and being slightly overtaken by plants at the moment. There are a few garden plans on my desk that I am finishing all the plant lists for and so I am eating, dreaming, sleeping all the colours, textures, greens and flowers that are possibilities.
Narrowing the list is always a good challenge...how does one choose their top 10 favourite plants....impossible!
I suppose really it comes down to all the practical things sometimes, like soil and site and rainfall and aspect.
And then its always fun to throw a few wild cards and absolutley must have beauties in.
It's good that gardens don't just need to be about one thing I suppose also....there can be formal parts and flowering parts and vege parts that all work together to give a verdant green enjoyable landscape.
