E IS FOR...................

It's strange but although E is one of the most used letters in the English alphabet we only have 3 plants beginning with E in our garden. I could cheat and put the Dog's tooth violets in under their Latin name of Erythronium but that wouldn't really be fair.
We don't really have a sunny enough aspect for our Echinea but it seems to be thriving.
I love the seeds of our Eunonymus. We grow it against the fence and I prune it hard each year to keep in trained as a fence covering plant.

Our Eucomis our Pineapple plant is a source of fun. People often think we are growing pineapples! I must say the particular variety we have smells rather putrid if you stick your nose in to sniff the flowers; probably why flies are always hanging around it; still it keeps the flies away from us!

Oooo I have 2 of the pieapple plant in my garden, well actually in my greenhouse at the moment. Are yours planted in the garden or in pots????

I do have some in pots (they seed themselves really well) but the ones in the photo are in the garden. They have come through 2 winters now.

Aah! At last it is letting me in for a comment! I don't know what this trouble is... you said my blog takes ages to come up it does for me as well, I get a blue sky for ages and ages THEN white stripes (where the ads come through) THEN it appears. The trouble I had with yours is to do with popups and I tried to unblock them but something wasn't playing ball... Well I'm in now anyway so no worries. Hmm I'm sure I had a pertinent comment to make but it's gone... oops! Ok well happy new year though, give Mick my best wishes,
All the best,
Gleds
