Here we are me dears with the August garden and we are now up to date.
The main border looked fab with several newbies together with old favourites.
The wonderful Salvia 'Amistad'
All the salvias are stating to kick in and look fab.
Nicotiana Mutabilis Marshmallow ( a plant that we should never be without ) looks great mixing through them. and as you can see the bees love both.
morning glory 'Ipomoea - Heavenly Blue'
Pots and Fuchsias.
Salvia patens “Patio Deep Blue” and dahlia ' Early Bird '
Up in the new hot border things are coming together nicely with a few pinks that will need to be moved at some point.
New to our garden and grown from seed last March is Mina lobata - Spanish Flag.
After a slow start it has flowered it's heart out and is just stunning.
It is also very difficult to photograph.
We have added it to our lists of plants that the garden should never be with out.
Our fave Dahlia a 'Bishops Children seedling, brought from the last garden is doing well.
It ceates a good focal point at the end of the path.
We do have rather a lot of things in pots. These have mainly found a home down the side if the house.
It is rather shady but every thing has done rather well.
Particularly the fuchsias. We now have 30 named varieties which will need a separate post of their own. This is 'Thalia'
Pelargonium Calliope Dark Red
We don't usually mention our indoor plants but we treated ourselves on our visit to the R H S Spring show to Aeschynanthus 'Hot Flash' from the Dibley's Stall
It relay was quite small but is growing nicely and this month treated us to a exotic display on the brightest orange flowers imaginable.
Well there tiz me dears. Now that I have caught up with the missing posts we are back and ready for the September post which should be more or less on time !
