13th September

The vegetable garden is still going full on – the beans have all been picked but we have overdone the lettuce! Squash are growing where the sweet Corn were and the pretty flowering bean at the back of the garden is called Lab Lab

The greenhouse is full of tomatoes and peppers.

Mermaid is the yellow rose growing up the Gingko tree

The Autumn border is beginning to star with asters and dahlia and the stream garden has hydrangea and schizostylis in pink and white. The upright plants along the culvert are Toad lilies.

Colchicums or Autumn Crocus are the purple plants in the grass beside the East Lawn

Some roses are repeat flowering and the Sedum, Dahlias and Asters are enjoying the warm sunshine. The red Dahlia with dark foliage is Bishop of Llanduff- marvellous performer.


Stay healthy and good gardening
