To the greenhouses to do some videos with Karol and Asia.
Salvia confertiflora in flower here for the first time beside the main greenhouse. This is a woody perennial which is frost tender. Very beautiful and striking.
One of the two large Fuchsia exorticatica has died in the drought outside the front door. The survivor has a good crop of juicy black fruits.

Eucryphia pinnatifolia over. Nymansii v good. Several bits of mountain Rhododendrons – a good deal of rain. Magnolia delavayi still many flowers, also both forms of Grandiflora.
Eucryphia pinnatifolia 2 days short of best – Billardieri still good in places and been out since June – Rho Didymum still nice. Auriculatum hybrids going over but some still at their best. Very dry early June and May – since then lots of rain and all July growth good.
