The flowering cherry tree in my front garden has dropped it leaves already. It was the really dry May,June and July we had, has stressed it. Leave it until spring to see if it terminal.
If I had to pick just one it would be snowdrops, so easy to grow and such a welcoming sight in the garden - the start of great things to come
Can I join in?! Dancer2, I think they're Crinum powellii rosea....
Do you trim your S.tennuissima now to get a 2nd flush?
oh i like the looks of that Hordeum! Like you say similar to S.tennuissima, but mine has gone a bit strawy now. would be great to have that fluffy/soft look extended in my border. Gotta get some!
My echeveria has survived the last two winters outside, i'm in south devon though, It is planted in very very gritty soil. Different flower to yours.
That's not stipa, its a pampas grass!
Flowers, berries and autumn colour, absolute beauty in my book
The only things I protect are a tree fern by tying up the fronds and stuffing straw in the crown and the bananas have the leaves chopped just before first frost and I put old compost bags( opened both ends) over the truck stuffed with straw. Tender perennials like ginger lilies and cannas get a deep mulch.
Yes can remove the brown leaves, it's called brown biting in some circles, exposes the truck and improves the look.
