Hi Happymarion. My horse chestnut tree is looking ablaze with colour. Will post some piccies soon. However my potted Acers are looking a bit crisp around the leaves, I water them well, so any suggestions?

Horse chestnuts look terrific in the autumn gina. 

Have you got a lot of wind? I'll rephrase that...

Are the Acers a bit exposed? Sun's still strong at this time of year too so it might be a combination of those.

I had the same problem with my little Acer. I blame the sun and wind.

I visited some peoples gardens in Cardiff earlier this year and all the Acers I saw were planted in Deep Shaded and Crowded woodland areas.

My Michaelmas daisies are out.

 One above is "Little Pink Beauty", but it isn't nearly as pink as the one I had years ago in England, although I bought it in England. I bought the next ones here in France.

Love your asters Lizzie.  And FG - it's planting time - enjoy

Lovely FG ! Daniel Deronda is on my shopping list - didn't know it had lovely seedheads too. Are there still flowers on it ( sneaking into the edge of the photo)??
03/10/2013 at 21:07

great photos thanks

Loads chick! It's much more purple than it looks on the pix. I bought it in the bargain corner at GC during early summer and it's in a large pot at the moment. It's grown like mad and flowered really well so I'd say it's a good one to buy. 

03/10/2013 at 21:21
Saw it at Chelsea and could not believe the size of the flowers - drop dead gorgeous!
03/10/2013 at 21:39

Yes - big flowers- about 4" across. It's going into the new raised beds I'm making so hopefully it'll be even bigger better next year!

The hoverfly's enjoying that Buzzy! Great autumnal colour.

I think I've fallen in love with Daniel Deronda - he might have to come to live in our front garden (when I've dug the new border).  

I think I'm soon going to have to make my serious list .... maybe today is the day to start ....

It's a nice colour Dove. A good purple. I got it for £4 in the bargain corner of the GC with Etoile Violette in late spring /early summer. Strong grower. It associated well with the Cupani sweet peas I had in front of it so you'll have to give them another go too!   Just noticed this morning that the 2nd crop of buds on EV are starting to open.

04/10/2013 at 11:26

I had this one http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/clematis-purpurea_plena-elegans.html in a previous garden - fablous for autumn colour - I'll have to find room for this one too. 

04/10/2013 at 11:27

Scroll down on that link and look at the last picture - isn't it fabulous?
