Webmasters note:  I would like to make the map interactive. To allow clicking on any location to see a pop up description of the plant along with a photo. But of course that requires photos!  So if anyone has any photos of any of the above plants - either on their own or on location in Hampton Lucy - I’d love to here from you!
