Glasnevin: revisited

I recently visited the National Botanic Garden again and, as usual, the garden was looking splendid with lots to see.

The only disappointment was the alpine house. I have mentioned before that it is not as good as it could/should be. I know that this is a tricky time for alpines but this lily was not only stunted with virus but it was wrongly labelled – it should be ‘La Reve’.
