Hello everyone,
In early July I will be giving a talk at a gardening programme which I have entitled ‘European Musings.  This talk will not be a travelogue but rather some thoughts on plants and garden features we saw in Europe during April.
One thing that stood out to me was the use of New Zealand native plants ‘around British historical buildings. Most had hebe, pittosporum, coprosma, flax and carex as their garden features. This was particularly noticeable in the garden up the hill between the carpark and the road at Belfast Castle. As my camera batteries were on the blink at the time I missed a photo which I would like to use.
Does anyone have a photo of that garden, or of similar plantings that they could send me to use in my talk? Or maybe someone from Belfast goes past the castle and could take a photo for me. I appreciate your help in this matter.
David Adams
