I is for Iceberg roses which are familiar, and popular, white floribundas seen in many gardens. I bought one when I took on the plot which rather surprisingly didn’t flower so after a couple of years I moved it. It then did but I was even more surprised to find that it had reverted to a Dog rose! Nikkipolani, over in Southern California, grows this fabulous looking Iceberg rose hedge.
The Jay is a lovely looking, but somewhat elusive, bird that I rarely ever catch more than a glimpse of but isn’t one that I’m likely to see on the plot.
Jersey Kale isn’t something that most people would grow in the vegetable patch but I’m going to try this year. I’m doing so as Tony, the horticultural society trading secretary, has challenged other members to see who can grow the tallest plant and has provided some seed to anyone interested. It can grow to well over fifteen feet so I wonder what height the winning one will be.
Have a good National Gardening Week, which starts tomorrow!
