Visit to Kew Gardens
I'm in London for the week so naturally I had to go and visit Kew. Even though it is still early spring there is more than enough to see. London is at least a week ahead because here the magnolia are already in full flower. In Kew the rock garden was filled with flowering saxifraga, primula, frittilaria, anemonies and pulsatilla. I have plants in these families but none are close to flowering in the Netherlands yet (except for my primula auricula which is in bud). Over the next couple a days I will post some of the photo's from inside the greenhouse including my favourite from the trip: the jade vine.
