RHS Wisley at the weekend and I got to wander through their lovely little apline houses. I love these, with their brick beds and pots surrounded by sand, they are so neat and ordered. One of the nice things is the rotation of plants, so with every visit the plants are different. Of course this means that for every perfectly formed alpine house there is probably a large dis-ordered storage green house full of plants waiting for their chance to star.
But who can blame it for when there are such sunny, if a little spiky, places to relax the days away.
