The banks are lined with primulas, irises and gunneras
The gardens are famous for the collections of conifers, ferns and gunneras
If your area is very moist, then gunneras
and rodgersia provide strong shapes with large and tough foliage.
For smaller spaces, there are some small, mat-forming gunneras
growing to no more than 15cm (6in) tall.
Nufeeld[R] is a manufacturer of professional monitoring systems based around the EmbracingSound[R] technology, founded by Johan Eckerblad and Mikael Gunneras
, both long time fans of the single loudspeaker box invention as well as professional sound engineers, musicians and producers since more than twenty years.
While there are some small, mat-forming gunneras
growing to no more than 15cm (6in) tall, it is the giant rhubarb, G manicata, which is the real showstopper in this group of perennials.
Other show gardens featured all manner of foliage plants in a mass of textures and colours, from bold gunneras
, to fragile-looking ferns, rich hostas and bamboos which gave movement to the gardens.
In gardens where gunneras
can grow to full size, whole families can shelter under their huge rough leaves - they look like a leftover from when dinosaurs ruled the earth.
There's a lake, which is well-populated by birds, huge marginal plantings of Gunneras
and Ligularias - and a hot south-facing border full of plants we can only just grow in the Midlands.
Hostas, ferns, Astilbes and Gunneras
all love damp soils as do willows, Eucalyptus, alder and Liquidamber.
I love the great gunneras
from the Amazon with leaves so enormous you can shelter from the rain under a single one.
And it's also here you find the top foliage plants - hostas, ligularias, gunneras
, and a wide range of ferns.
