    Thanks for that info Shiney. We've been several times but have missed the guided tour each time. What I love about the garden is that everything is labelled so I take pictures of what attracts me.

      It's not overly showy and has a defined flowering period...........

      We're all different but for me ugly is anything that is easy, anything that looks daisylike, anything too gaudy (especially a lot of the Fuchsia cultivars) and variegated foliage (which just looks "ill" to me).
