Chelsea Physic Garden

Echium at the Chelsea Physic Garden!

The Chelsea Physic Garden has opened its “Garden of Edible and Useful Plants” but it is still young and relatively unformed, although will be an interesting project to follow.  And will help us garden designers who want to put veggies back into the urban garden.  However, it is worth a visit to the Chelsea Physic garden at any time as there is always something interesting to learn and look at – these Echiums alone are very spectacular, but late me show you some other beauties that possibly hide their light a little – for example: Adonis asetivalis:

Adonis aestivalis "look at me closely, I'm stunning"

And then there’s Leuzea centaurioides:

Leuzea centaurioides "I'm a thistle, but you wouldn't know it"

And there’s the understated lupin – bring back lupins!

Lupinus chamissonis

The common foxglove – but there’s nothing common about this one

And over dressed for the party is the poppy (as ever)
