Permaculture garden for RHS Show
- Hi The Edible Landscaping team are designing a garden for the RHS
show in Cardiff April 18 - 20. It is a permaculture garden and will be
based on the sorts of things you can eat in April. We are looking for
lots of plants! If people could either loan or give us plants (the
garden is currently self-financed although we are seeking sponsorship)
we would be v. grateful. Cuttings are no good because the plants need
to be reasonably big by April 18th. Plants would need to be dug up
soon and put into containers so they could recover and be happy, good
looking and productive in their containers by April 18 -20. We would
prefer to have them sooner rather than later so we could take on the
responsibility of getting them show standard. (this is one of the
drawbacks of shows everything needs to be perfect). Everything will
remain in containers - nothing is planted into the ground.
Our species list currently includes:
Elaeagnus x ebbingei (we really need one which is fruiting)
Any other fruiting Elaeagnus as second choice and / or as well as ebbingei
Berberis buxifolia (preferably not 'Nana')
Will consider other Mahonia
Amelanchier x grandiflora
Gaultheria mucronata `Mulberry Wine'
Will consider other Gaultheria which produce nice fruit
Humulus lupulus `Aureus'
Akebia x pentaphylla
We are also compiling a list of herbaceous plants:
Allium paradoxum 'normale'
We are happy to consider other suggestions. Please reply to
ms@... not yahoo as then we don't have to keep
looking through to see if anyone has replied. Thanks very much for any
help you can offer.

I didn't know these were edible. Primrose is listed as toxic to
cats, and so are daylily, but daylily is the only lily a human
