With our Annual Exhibition at Trelissick just five weeks away I thought that it was time to prepare some Accent Plants. Coral and Audrey always create a marvellous display with our offerings and need our plants in as great a variety as possible.
After Ritta Coopers inspiring talk last year we should be able to put on an even better show.
Below are a couple of photos of my mornings work gathering plants from my garden.
Libertia and mind-your-business in one of Gordon's marvellous pots.
Uncinia and a yellow tinted moss.
Obviously much trimming and tidying up needed when they recover from transplanting.
If you have nothing in your garden I notice that the local garden centres (and even Trago Mills) have a selection of alpine plants at the moment. Most of these plants are a little over £1 each and are capable of being pulled apart to give a piece for an Accent Plant leaving you with plenty to dig into the garden.
Other photos/ideas welcome.
