The Hydrangea's in my front garden are doing well this year.This is a few of them.
Some pics of my front garden
What is the Hemerocallis please?
It's Crimson Pirate.
I love the dark hems. I have one allegedly called Marianna (never yet found a pic of it) and Bridget which is really red.
Just a few favourites at the moment.
My faithful old fuschia, had this in a pot for years now and it keeps coming
Same pot, different weeks
I love begonias
These are the thug of the week but I love them, have two plants which have taken over the border
The weird and wonderful
I love fuschia's. I had a huge one outside my back window which has been there since we moved in 20 years ago but this year it had fuschia gall mite so I've had to cut it down. I'm hoping it might come back next year and be ok but it will take a while to get it to the size it was before.
A few more I like in the front garden.
My thug is getting more thuggish, its lovely though but I can't capture the vibrant blue with my camera
Wish I had more room in the garden for crocosmias, I love them
This rose just goes on and on right through to about November if the weather stays mild
The patio rose blooming its heart out and defying the nasty weather
I have to confess I've neglected my garden for the last two weeks whilst dog sitting so only spending a few hours at home every day.
The grass needs cutting, the edges need trimming and stuff needs cutting back, dead heading and a general tidy up.
I've got some new bark to top up Jack's Path. (He used to crash through a flowerbed on his way up the garden chasing squirrels, so I created a proper pathway for him to save my plants!)
There are a few spots lacking colour just now as things have gone over so I need to give it some thought and buy some suitable flowering perennial plants to fill the gaps - such a hardship!
Stray seed from the bird feeder has sprouted in the gravel area and cracks in the paving, so that's another job.
The replacement Clematis still need planting - they are flowering in their tiny pots already - poor things!
The pond weed needs thinning and the plants need splitting and trimming back too.
Got my work cut out this week!
More planting to do!
Raspberry, unusual cream Salvia, Hydrangea, Gaura, Physostegia (Obedient Plant).
Still haven't done half the jobs on my previous post, apart from the grass and Jack's path! But I'm on my own practically all weekend, so no excuses
Somelovely plants, looks like your going to be busy.
Seems to be a lot of yellow flowers at the moment.
These are all seedlings from one plant.
I love these, they look so graceful and eye catching.
Me too Charity, and they just stay in flower all summer through till Nov. Ive never had so many seedlings in one go before , I'm just going to leave them there. There's a lot more coming up on the other side of the garden as well.
I've got one of those! So hopefully I will get lots more. I may have to move the original one though as it's in the way. I didn't realise it would grow so tall when I planted it! Should I chop it back in the winter or move it as it is?
I find with mine some years they don't seed at all, then other s they do, so be care ful you don't pull them up when they first come through.
I have mine in the middle of boarders as well as at the back, as they are very airy plants and you can see through them.
If you are moving it when in flower cut it down, I would move it now. I always cut mine half down in the winter , then further down early spring .
Got t.his lovely lavender from Lidl.
