bergenia is in!

I had a very hard time finding bergenia at this time of year.  They flower in winter and shops generally sell plants in flower when they're looking tempting.  So by late spring not one shop was selling them, and even asking my local to order them in wasn't getting me anywhere.  But then I got a call at work - my local had managed to source some!  They're just little at the moment but they should grow and spread all summer long until they fill out the bed.  I call them my little cabbages.
So here it is, the patio garden in its early glory.  Soon enough I'll have updates as everything settles in and grows thick and lush ... I hope!
