    I do like a natural style generally but also love the searing colour of pelagonium and fuchia -single forms.
    Purple foliage and Corydalis sp especial favourites .
    So beautiful plants, native and woodland appeal most- but I also grow and am interested in more edible plants IE squash ,cucumbers that need intensive cultivation - I have a mental list of wants that are maybe none of these things !
    Especially interested in oriental vegetables- shiso ,udo ,wasabi ?
    There plants I have seen or read about over time, that I have always wanted to acquire.
    I would like some native plants for my pond and a mini water lily too.
    aso shade loving ground cover stephandra,pachysandra .
    Rhubarb ,tayberry too.
