Currently my pride and joy. Meconopsis integrifolia (Farrer's Lampshade Poppy) from China and Tibet. This specimen has survived flooding and generally very damp conditions and even attempted to flower at the end of last year. The buds eventually started to rot and I removed them to prevent further decay. Surprisingly seems to be as tough as old boots, for a plant that comes from well drained mountain sides, in the wet!
|Anemonella thalictroides 'Cameo'|
Peat-based composts were actually discussed in the RHS magazine this month, there must still be hope!
