Hi Philip. All very nice - wife did grow some Tigridias years ago - fantastic colours. Without any kind of pretentiousness intended I like to think of myself as a "plantsman" (as yourself) and consequently apart from the many "regular" lovely plants liked also to go for the more unusual and not so often seen ones - the accent mostly being on hardy herbaceous perennials. I have often read of the climate in Ireland being so good for plants and it comes to mind those I have grown which just did "so so" for me in my area climate but I imagine would have "romped away" in yours. Tell me please have you ever or do you now grow Smilacina racemosa - looks the same in stem/foliage as Solomons Seal but instead of the flowers hanging under the stems they are tufted at the stem ends - have a lovely scent - I used to stand a potful outside the door to catch it each time I was in or out. It did not like my dry East Anglian area too much so needed watching. I used to grow the common Solomons Seal in the garden but it spread like the clappers and became prone to yearly attacks by a grub (some Sawfly) which stripped it very quickly. Now have just a potful of a smaller variegated one. Many of these more unusual plants do not make much real impact growing and are thus bypassed but they are very interesting and to me it is the pleasure of having/growing them. Syd.
