We put the roses in the wrong place and will soon be pricked by the thornsĀ  — we will have to move them further back. I can’t have enough plants, I want the garden to be a sea of them. I wish I knew the names of them all. I checked out the Royal Horticultural Society website and saw this:

I got the name of this — it’s the Great Black Masterwort. I’d buy it for that name alone. I like the RHS site and I think I’ll buy some plants from their shop.
