  1. you wouldn’t believe this but my birthday is August 1 (1950). I visited Wallington fuchsia house in 1986 and read that inscription, but didn’t write it down at the time.
    I finally emailed them two days ago and got their reply (as above), which I then googled and found your comment. Good to hear that you found it important too.

    Regards,

    John
