One of the best things about being a gardener, up there with cake and unusual suntans, is the propensity of fellow gardeners to share. It could be plants, cuttings, seed, even advice. It is a knee jerk reaction to admiration of handiwork, can occasionally become an obsessive trait, it is what we do, we like to “pass it forward”. A few weeks ago we were visited by Torrington Tina and her husband, an appreciative and knowledgeable partnerhip. She left with some cuttings of myrtle and salvia in her handbag and promised to return with a special euphorbia that she had in her possession. This morning I was thrilled to find at the bottom of the potting shed steps, in a rather high quality plastic bag*, a wonderful specimen of Euphorbia characias ssp. wulfenii. So kind, thank you very much it will be very happy here.
