Lad's Love

Now you might be wondering why these lovely little cuttings of Lads Love which are currently growing in Rampton are of interest to East Haven? Well....they are no ordinary cuttings. We think they are rather special having being transported half way across the country from number 4 Long Row East Haven. Eck Norrie's old garden no less. This aromatic shrub with a tiny yellow flower used to thrive in Eck's garden and when Bill and Jean Wake moved away, a cutting found it's way to Dorrie's home in Rampton where it is thriving in her garden. So the Lads Love or Southernwood as it sometimes called, is  about to return to it's former home. I think Eck would be pleased!
