Euphorbia polychroma 'Midas'

Euphorbia polychroma 'Midas'

This web site is designed to inform readers about the delights of Euphorbias in the garden, and the great variety available to gardeners. It contains information relating to my National Collection. It also gives information on the talks I give to groups. If you wish to book a talk go to the lectures page.

Plant Heritage National Collection of Hardy Euphorbias

The collection currently consists of 124 different species and cultivars. It is contained in 13 island beds mixed with other hardy herbaceous perennials. Beds are surrounded by paths and are mainly in full sun. Some plants are also displayed in pots and containers. Individual Euphorbia plants are labelled, whilst all plants are labelled on sketch maps which are available when viewing. The collection is grown at Firvale allotment gardens on the southern edge of the village of Harthill. The collection can be viewed by appointment from March to July. Admission is £3.00 and proceeds will be donated to the National Gardens Scheme.
