Quite nice and an interesting change in vegetation from the typical (English) garden. I imagine that some of these plants might require additional protection in the winter, and not just the ones in the hothouse.
Ohhhh ~ thanks so much for this, Mick! I'm pretty sure I have not read Bowles' books, although over the years have been exposed to many quotes from them and allusions to his ideas. All the succulents were a big surprise and it's wonderful to see them used as accents and "window dressing" -- good ideas for gardeners who admire them but may be unsure of how to place them.
Is the red-flowered plant after the topiary picture a form of Illicium? What is the lumpy green thing there in the squash leaves? And that "long berry" in the last picture -- ?

Hello my yellow rose of Texas! I knew somebody would ask. Of course I took the picture thinking I would remember and of course I don't. Why don't I use my notes? Clematis keeps coming into my tiny mind. The wrinkly thing is a squash of some nature and the only label near the last one was Sarcoccus.
