Ang and I were granted a rare preview of the plants for sale at Maureene and Keith’s up-coming event for charity. Such visits are generally actively discouraged and although we were allowed to look, Keith refused our offers to buy. Of course we had a legitimate reason for being there – we were dropping off some plants from my garden as donations.
I had my eye on the Globba winitii – a Thai ginger commonly known as Dancing Ladies: its compact form will be a hit for owners of small gardens.
It was overwhelming to see the number of plants laid out on the lawn and under shade; hundreds of plants that will have to be moved under cover for the sale. We couldn’t see how it could be achieved but twice a year Keith and Maureene perform that magic.
The sale will be at Keith and Maureene’s place. I love visiting their garden; there is always something to learn and to love.
