        No, KFF. It's from a garden in Belgium, a beautiful, small garden.

            @KFF I was thinking the same thing just regarding gravel, as we have both front and back gardens gravelled :)

                    Yes there was some beauties, I put a few round a little pond i built midsummer and fell in love with them @kindredspirit posts as also inspired me,

                    I will have to have a read up for what's suitable for the area I want them in.

                      @martin-f It would be nice to see some pic's when you've done them and after they've matured a bit :)
