    So, I am not usually a ‘flower person’ and mainly grow veg. I think I decided this is because I do not really like the flowers found here enough to want to plant them. I think I prefer more exotic plants.
    So I and going to plant the blue Himalayan poppy which get 10 inches in diameter and salvia patens ‘oxford blue’ which are found in Mexico. They are both cool climate exotics so could survive over winter in the greenhouse.
    I will also be trying a new fruit.... ‘pepino’ melon pear... it looks like a pear and tastes like a honeydew melon/ cucumber! I believe this is from south and Central America
