Dwarf Allium & Others.

I’d been looking for one of these for sometime now, and whilst I know I could order one over the internet it was never really a consideration. Taking a trip up into the Quantock Hills we dropped in to Triscombe Nursery for just a look around. There as I turned the corner and made my way to the Alpine selection (where else), was a handful of Dwarf Allium. For under £2 one was picked up ready for planting in a pot.

I had one in mind which is a Tony Remington one. Previously it contained my first Echeveria which had been flowering for weeks. I frequently retire a plant to the garden; I’m sure if the plant could think it may well appreciate the move. Fortunately here the soil leans on acid based and just about anything you plant grows extremely well.

I also had some wild violets and a few Rhodohypoxis so just mixed them up some. Has a ‘just-planted’ look but will soon fill the pot. All I can now smell is onions … hence working with Alliums.

I’d not had a lot of luck with miniature hostas this year, but came across a pretty Blue Mouse Ears advertised by Bali-Hai Nursery. Free postage on this one and I knew I had an ERIN pot ready and waiting. Bonsai Eejit has recently paid a visit to said nursery; lucky fellow. Check out his wonderful web-blog, be warned though … it is a very addictive site.

I had some Allium left over so popped some into another ERIN pot that was currently empty. Not for long round here though!

This next one again was currently empty and I had some spare of this one so for now it really is just about differing heights and colours when viewing these small plants. Also one from Vic at ERIN.
