Flowers

Today we have started to pick the Helichrysum, I think we have got it at a good time, if you let the buds get too open then they will dry out and drop seed all over the house and not look great. For me this is very much a Great Dixter house flower, Christpher liked to dry the flowers and hang them through the house, giving you some summer interest in the winter. This year they are all the same red. Matt our North American student got the seed and sowed it for me, he has a great eye for a great flowers and once again he got it right, this one is H. ‘Monster fireball red’, thank you Matt.
