When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Gunnera manicata

😂😂 I love the way the old leaves that I folded over it for winter protection look like antlers... @rachelbrooks

I first saw it at Heligan & we have a photo of my son having his first ever ice cream cone standing under it. Then he spotted this one for sale in an amazing garden in Jura. It was tiny & cost £2 which we had to put in an honesty box 😊 @Jasonsparkes1

This was bought as a tiny plant from #Jura House garden when it was open to the public and you left payment in an honesty box. The new owner, a banker, no longer opens it to the public - a real shame.

A shame indeed. To quote the Divine Comedy they are clearly a 'Complete Banker' 😬

The #rhs 'The Garden' commissioned a piece on Jura House Garden a few years ago, but it was never published as editor decided it was "too far away". From where?!
