Actinidia arguta 'Ananasnaya' (new)

A Russian form developed under Stalin, but virtually unheard of in the UK.

With thin smooth skins there is no need to peel them, unlike kiwi fruit. Very hardy and best in a sunny spot in the UK. Needs a mate like 'Issai' for pollination.

Asteranthera ovata

Asteranthera ovata

A very lovely gesneriad from the forests of S. Chile where it climbs tree trunks on the edge of forest clearings. In this country it requires humidity and leafy soil to prosper, so is good on a sheltered north wall or tree. Raspberry-red tubular flowers with wide spreading lobes appear from June and through the summer. 3-4m. Not for the very coldest areas.
