Noel Kingbury’s home garden right now in Hay on Wye, Wales, U.K. He just wrote an interesting blog post on slug and snail damage in his garden and what to do about these slimy creatures.

A charming garden house designed by Georgia firm, Norman Davenport Askins Architect. Very French. It’s hard for me to believe that he also designed the planting but no garden designer’s name was given. Hmmm. Why do so many architects not give credit where credit is due? Don’t get me started.
Hibicus syriacus, the Chiffon series: My grandmother called them Rose of Sharon. She grew unnamed varieties with a country look and a wonderfully long blooming period. I’ve been growing pristine white ‘Diana’ ever since it appeared on the market in the 80’s. Now we have another series from English plant breeder, Roderick Woods, called Chiffon. In addition to the pink and blue pictured here there is also a lavender and white. Spring Meadows Nursery is marketing them in it’s Proven Winner line. They’re lovely, don’t you think?
