To Belgium and Back
I am always on the look out for new and exciting varieties of annuals and biennials for the garden at Perch Hill.
So we made a special trip to Belgium to collect a fantastic new selection of plants. With a map in hand we set off for Silene Nursery located 25 miles north of Brussels. Whilst small in scale, Silene specialise in unusual varieties of seedlings and plants with the emphasis being on offering an idiosyncratic, out-of-the-ordinary assortment.
Back at Perch Hill we have created a new trial bed especially for these plants. This area will be our laboratory and the plants our subjects. An experiment to see which varieties of plants we like the best and work well in the garden, the results of which could be seen in the seed catalogue next year.
