  5. EUONYMOUS EUROPAEUS

    This attractive deciduous shrub bears panicles of small yellow flowers followed by four-lobed red fruits which split open to reveal orange seeds, the narrowly ovate leaves turning yellow or red in autumn, making it a popular ornamental plant in gardens and parks in addition to its resistance to frost and wind. European spindle wood is very hard, and can be cut to a sharp point, and predictably was used in the past for making wool spindles. Its name is derived from the Greek, ‘eu’ or ‘good’, and ‘onama’, ‘name’. It is also said to have meant ‘lucky’ but to have been used ironically because it was an unwelcome plant. Or, even from 'Euonyme', the mother of the Furies and, thus, a reference to its poisonous nature. Or, who knows.......... ... Learn More

  6. EUONYMUS CORNUTUS QUINQUECORNUTUS

    A very elegant, narrow-leaved, foliage plant that displays quite nondescript flowers in the summer, but come autumn produces a stunning display of bright red seeds that dangle from a bizarrely twisted, but most attractive and ornamental seed case. Oh, and spindleberry wood is very hard, and historically was often used for making tool handles, including textile spindles! ... Learn More

  7. EXOCHORDA X MACRANTHA 'THE BRIDE'

  9. FICUS RACEMOSA

    This attractive tree usually has a distinctive crooked trunk and a spreading crown, but unlike the banyan, it has no aerial roots. The most distinctive aspect of this tree is the large number of short compact clusters of red, furry figs which amazingly grow directly out of the trunk of the tree. Native to Australasia, SE Asia and Indian sub-continent, it has long been used in Ayurveda, the traditional and ancient system of Indian medicine. It is also one of the sacred trees of Buddhists and Hindus. ... Learn More

  10. FICUS RELIGIOSA

    This lovely tree with pale grey bark produces figs which are primarily pollinated by fig wasps, which enter the flower through the hole at the base of the fruiting structure. It is sacred to Buddhists and Hindus as the Buddha himself was thought to have sat under one when he received enlightenment (bodhi). The oldest plant in the world of known planting date is the bo tree called Sri Maha Bodhi planted at the temple at Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka, in 288 BC. It is native to India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, south-west China and Indochina and Sadhus (Hindu ascetics) still meditate beneath sacred fig trees, and Hindus do circumambulation, or meditative pacing around the sacred fig tree as a mark of worship. Today it is revered as a symbol for prosperity, happiness, good fortune and long life. ... Learn More

    FUCHSIA ARBORESCENS

    A spectacular plant from the highlands of Central America, this rather un-Fuchsia-like shrub with glossy-green leaves, bears on red stems many beautiful, large panicles of bright pink flowers all through the summer and autumn. It was even reported to have flowered continually for 13 months through a particularly mild winter in Cornwall. It can survive a few degrees of frost but would benefit from some protection over the winter. ... Learn More

  13. FUCHSIA BACILLARIS

    This rare and delightful diminutive shrub has very many small, coral-red flowers with frilly reflexed petals, which open for almost every month of the year, and tiny delicate leaves, the stems being deep red on the young growth. Bunches of small, shiny, black, spherical berries are later produced. Originating as a natural hybrid from Mexico, it is evergreen in all but the hardest winters, when it is often cut back to the ground but always regenerates in the spring. Very few fertile seeds are ever produced. ... Learn More

The long trumpet-shaped blooms open progressively down the cluster for several months, followed, quite incredibly, by tasty green fruits! This is an extremely valuable plant that can either be grown in a large pot or be centre-stage in the garden. Freshly picked seeds are very rarely offered for sale. ... Learn More
