Euphorbia polychroma 'Midas'

Euphorbia polychroma 'Midas'

This web site is designed to inform readers about the delights of Euphorbias in the garden, and the great variety available to gardeners. It also contains information relating to my National Collection, publications, plants and seed available for the 2014 season. Information about my own Open Day and forthcoming events is also listed.

Plant Heritage National Collection of Hardy Euphorbias

The collection currently consists of 134 different species and cultivars. It is contained in 13 island beds mixed with other hardy herbaceous perennials. Beds are surrounded by paths and are mainly in full sun. Some plants are also displayed in pots and containers. Individual Euphorbia plants are labelled, whilst all plants are labelled on sketch maps which are available when viewing. The collection is grown at Firvale allotment gardens on the southern edge of the village of Harthill. The collection can be viewed by appointment from March to July and there is an Open Day in May. Admission is £2.50 and proceeds will be donated to the National Gardens Scheme. The next Open Day will take place on Sunday 4th May 2014 from 1:00-4:00.
