Hello, I'm new around here but have been reading loads having fallen in love with my garden this year for he first time afte 10 years of neglect. With an awful lot of elbow grease I'm pleased with the results although lots more to do and loads to learn.
Hi Georgie, welcome. It doesn't look neglected now. That's lovely
Thanks nutcutlet, there seems so much to learn! Am taking it in bit's size chunks
Georgie thats a garden to be proud of- beautiful
Lovely Georgie. It's obvious you've been working very hard to get it looking so good
Georgie, your garden is looking really lovely, and it's one of those nice pictures that enlarges when you click on it.
Here is one of my beds in May, looking reasonably neat.
And here it is again today looking rather scruffy and yellow and red.
Here is the lower middle bed, gone blue and pink.
Georgie - your garden looks great, just a little bit jealous
BL - lovely any time of year as always, but isn't it amazing how a few months can totally change the look?
Georgie, what a beautiful garden - looks idyllic
Lizzie - love the contrast between spring and late summer. What is the big yellow clump, and does it grow that size from nothing each year??
Lizzie I can see the difference in your border but it still looks lovely
Just wanna a show a return from the veg plot!
Lizzie! Your garden looks gorgeous as always!
that is really impressive Deano
Thanks for the warm welcome!
Lizzie I love those sweeping beds, especially the blue and pink.
Deano, WOW, I can but dream!
Deano- your veg is laid out as neatly as your veg beds
Deano, good looking veg. Clearly a keen grower? it's been an excellent year for veg I think
Today the last to flower dahlia has shown its flower. And what a beauty! Got it last year from the national dahlia collection that's based locally. Lost the label ...not like me....but it's a simple creamy yellow tucked in alongside a tall blue agastache (summer sky)
Thank you all. Chicky, first yellow clump is a helenium, then heliopsis, then Rudbeckia Goldquelle.
Which helenium,is that busy? Growing a few this year for the first time....it's a learning curve. They have been excellent but next year, now knowing exactly how,they grow, I will apply a Chelsea chop
I got it in a French GC some years ago and all it said on the label was Helenium jaune(yellow). Last year it was quite big so I split it in three and that is one of them.
Buddleia's out now -bees and butterflies enjoying it thoroughly:
Sorry this is a late response to Georgie Edwards' post on 18/8/2013
I just had to show Georgie Edwards my Bramley:
Am I right in saying it seems to be growing like the twin of Georgie's apple tree?
PS beautiful garden Georgie - you can come and do mine anytime!
