Our spectacular lily, Cardiocrinum giganteum, the Great Yunnan Lily, is flowering at last.
This 2m monster is native to the Himalayas, parts of China and Myanmar.
The plant dies after flowering but produces tiny offset bulbs which will be transplanted and hopefully flower after 3-5 years. It will be worth the wait!
Deep in the Spey Valley, Knockando Woolmill continues an unbroken 200 year old tradition, producing woven fabric on its historic looms.
Knockando Woolmill has always been at the heart of the local community. Listed as the 'Wauk Mill' in parish records from 1784, the mill has since maintained its traditions of spinning and weaving through generations of families.
All profits go to the Knockando Woolmill Trust to ensure the future of the Woolmill.
