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?

Fairygirl

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)??
Fairygirl

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.

Saw it at Chelsea and could not believe the size of the flowers - drop dead gorgeous!
Fairygirl

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 ....

Fairygirl

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.
