One of my favourite gardens in the flower show was the Jordan's Garden. This was designed by Selina Botham, who described it as having 'wild flowers on the outside but building in intensity of colour towards the centre'. The species of the outside include Wild Carrot Daucus carota, a distinctive umbellifer with bracts potruding from the bottom of this flower, as well as Yarrow Achillea millefolium, and Wild Thyme Thymus polytrichus amongst Cornflower Glebionis segetum and others. The flowers in the center of the garden included Meadow Sage Salvia nemerosa, with its purple flower spike and Culver's Root Veronicastrum virginicum 'Album'.
