A couple of days ago I went along to the HPS Western Counties Daisy Day. It was day for all things daisy (funnily enough). There were talks from Bob Brown, Helen Picton and Rob Cole. The morning of talks went very well and I was very good and resisted buying any plants in the sale. We were due to go to Rob Cole's nursery, Meadow Farm, after lunch and I was saving my pennies. Firstly though we adjourned to the pub for lunch.
Then it was time to get to the nursery.
We had gone to see the nursery though and in particular the echinacea trials which Bob had told us about earlier. He is experimenting with colour breeding in echinacea and I was fascinated to see what the plants would look like.
The day also involved a bit of plant swapping on the side.
