Here’s the iPlayer link:

    Regarding Helen’s new book. Can anyone please tell me the name of the white flowering plant in the woodland photograph on page 15?
    Thank you

      It looks to me like Dicentra ‘Langtrees’ – I grew it in my last garden. Sorry, I didn’t get to choose the pictures to illustrate my text!

    Hi Dot,

    I reckon it is convallaria (shame she didn’t tell us, eh?). Or, being as you asked the question twice, I presume you wanted two answers, so here’s another: it might be an anenome.

    By-the-by I recommend Phillips and Rix’s books on perennials. They have fabulous photos, loads of gen. and are very competitively priced.

    Dear Helen,

    Just saw your luv’ly book in the shop. And it’s so full, so knowledgeable, so pretty, I felt I had to ask: did you write it all yourself, and all the research and everything? It must have taken ages and ages, and you are always such a busy bee.

  5. Helen says:

    Yes, Judy, I did write it all myself (apart from many of the snippets in boxes in the plant directory that were contributed by Leigh Hunt of the RHS) and I have to say that when I agreed to do it I had no idea it would be such hard work! The most enjoyable bits to write, as you might imagine, were the chapters at the beginning and end, where I was able to ‘do my own thing’ to a great extent. Work on the plant directory section nearly did my head in. Everything I wrote was, of course, scrutinized by the RHS.

    Dear Helen,

    Thanks for your reply, but I am afraid Phillips and Rix is the book for me. I don’t think it can be bettered.

    luv J
