Sown/Planted in April
2017 Seed & Plant List
It's good to have some things still going at this time of year. My cowslips have started to flower, I think they were blooming at this time last year too.
There is still quite a lot of colour around, Jo, the rudbeckia are putting on quite a bright showing. I will have to check on our cowslip but I don't think it is showing any sign of flowering just yet.
I have precious few flowers in my garden at present, but my Bishop of Llandaff Dahlia has just produced some more blooms, which liven things up a bit.
The Bishop its jess definitely a cheery fella isn't he, Mark? I wonder what's the real Bishop of Llandaff was like red-faced and smiley? Our plant is back in the greenhouse now to spend winter there.
You still have some lovely blooms in your garden - I'm fairly certain that our recent freeze took care of anything left in ours.
It has flirted with a frost a little here, Margaret but nothing really significant yet.
Lovely Sue, my front garden is still looking colourful so I must take a photo or two x
I look forward to seeing your photos, Jo.
Some lovely flowers Sue...It's nice to see them as the days get shorter and duller!!
Let's just hope that we have a short and kind winter, Tanya and that spring springs early next year. :-)
Lovely! Have you found that your astrantia has bloomed amazingly well this year? My 'Shaggy' in the back garden has been flowering continuously since May. Possibly earlier, I'd have to check.
The astrantias have done well, Janet. The one in the photograph above was cut right back after its first lot of flowers and these were the second batch. We have planted a couple of new red astrantias which have yet to flower so I am looking forward to seeing them next year.
Beautiful, especially the second pic!xxx
Thank you, Dina
Any blooms at this time of the year are welcome don't you think Sue.
I do agree, Angie. The yellow and red bed that I planted this year is still full of flower. A post is coming up shortly.
Good to have flowers and nice to see your astrantia still in flower – mine didn’t like being dug up, potted and move house, it got serious mildew problem before it just wilted so I cut it down. Not sure if it is still alive as it didn't come back, I hope it might come back next year. It has been hard to keep so many plants alive in pots over the summer, things will be easier when they are back in the ground.
I hope that you're a strontia survives, Helene. These are the second flush of flowers, cutting it back after the first lot of flowers really worked. It is difficult to look after plants in pots and you have had so many. I hope most of them will survive and give you some great colour next year when they are planted in the ground.
Are those form your garden? They are so pretty!
They are, Malar
