Overshadowed by the monstrous hi rise developments in Vauxhall that offer little to address the Country’s pressing housing needs, it’s good to see that simple but excellent planting schemes in public parks are still being created. Lambs ears suppress weeds, whilst Echinacea and Japanese anemones are magnets for butterflies and bees, flowering for months and providing a welcome green oasis👌👏 well done #lambethcouncil #vauxhall #vauxhallpark #urbanplants #londonparks #londonparksandgardens

Suspect that Chelsea that starts today will feature far more seasonal plants such as these striking Ceratostigmas. Flowers non stop late summer into Autumn before the foliage turns an Autumnal red. Off to #rhschelseaflowershow later today so watch out for lots of ideas and inspiration👌😀 #ceratostigma #ceratostigmaplumbaginoides #chelsea #chelseaflowershow

Perfect example of ‘right plant, right place’ Sea Kale thriving in pure gravel on the beach in West Sussex. Thick succulent leaves and deep tap root makes the plant able to cope with maritime conditions. Small white flowers in early summer and you can steam the young shoots. Meant to taste like asparagus🤔 Has anyone tried them 🤔🤔 Crambe cordifolia is a cousin with mass of tall white flowers perfect for sunny location and coping with climate change in our increasingly dry gardens👌 #crambe #crambemaritima #seakale #edibleplants #rightplantrightplace #maritimegardens #climatechangeplants #droughttolerantplants #ferringbeach
