That mission completed I then went to the Thompson and Morgan Open Garden. We were given a tour the trial garden and Michael Perry, the Thompson and Morgan New Product Development Manager, talked us through the highlight plants of the season.
This is a tree tomato, or Tamarillo. I have seen one of these growing before in a glasshouse, but here they were growing outside.
Michael then went on to try and convince us that this heuchera hanging basket was a 'hipster' plant.
This is Delphinium 'Flamenco'.
This is Ptilotus 'Joey', which is as Australian as it sounds.
I also loved this Ipomoea 'Cardinal Climber'
A massive thanks to Michael and the team for looking after us so well.
