Flower of the Week, 22nd April.

All garden plants are derived from wild plants but many have been selectively bred until they are barely recognisable. We do, however, have some plants and flowers which are still in their native British form. More will bloom later in the season but we already have a few beginning to flower. At the top is forget-me-not.

Wood anemone grows well in the shade.
We have several cultivated varieties of primula but this is the native primrose or cowslip.
The white flowers, just emerging, are ransoms which is a wild form of garlic.
