Examine carefully and identify
1. The camera slipped. It’s the golden torch cactus, Eriocactus leninghausii. This is the least hardy of my outdoor cacti and I have today brought it into my unheated glasshouse where it will remain unwatered for the next four months.
2. A self-sown Dicentra formosa. This variety, ‘Bountiful’ comes almost true from seed.
3. Phlomis russeliana. Three foot high in May, now in October it makes beautiful ground cover.
