The days are getting noticeably shorter but we've been lucky weatherwise enjoying warm sunny days. The new Dragon Borders have been very successful and we've enjoyed prolonged colour since May. As few things need moving around to optimise heights and planting a Mexican sunflower (Tithonia) at the front was never going to work! However, the flowered its heart out and the bees loved it! At the moment the Phlox are over and the Rudbeckia are fading. However, the Hesperanthus are following on with a blaze of colour and the Penstemons are still going strong, A couple of low growing Michaelmas daisies are also ablaze and probably need moving further forward as does a Scabious. Note to self: support the Hesperanthus MUCH earlier! Left photo taken this week. Right photo taken in August.
Bottom photo demonstrates the wisdom of supporting plants early and not allowing them to flop on the grass!
