Yoke van der Meer
Yoke started her Yoke’s Magic Gardening business in April 2012. She has also recently (January, 2019) started growing a very colourful plant called the Salvia again, of which she used to have a National Collection at former Rodbaston College in Staffordshire.
Here in Britain we had Pat Vlasto, Beth Chatto, Beryl Davies (from former Probus Demonstration Garden in Cornwall) and later Christine Yeo to thank for the wonderful pioneering work the'd done with salvias. We now have two lovely salvias to at least honour Pat in Salvia x jamensis 'Pat Vlasto' and Salvia 'Christine Yeo', which is, what I always believed, a tough cross of S. microphylla and S. chamaedryoides.
