Morning all. Welcome back from hols those who went. Look forward to seeing your photos. There is a gallery for gardens we have visited.
Michelmas daisies, especially "Monch", Rudbeckias, especially "Goldsturm', heleniums.
Addict, we used to tread on them too! Well done for Indigofera, at least I guessed pea family.
If it turns out not to be Euphorbia millifera, try Dixter.
Looking forward to the herbaceous stuff!
Nearly changed my mind the other day when wrestling with bindweed in the heat!
The advising of replies doesn't seem to be working at the moment.
Ferns would be good! But how do the Buddleia and the Rosemary feel about being in the shade? I thought they preferred sun.
I have Eremurus, only disadvantage is short flowering season. Now I know why it does well here. Very cold winters and hot summers in Dordogne. I cut the flowers down when I get round to it.
I have horses, so I just leave it in a pile for a year until it is black.
Looked up snowberry and I agree. When I was a child there was one by the church and my brother, sister and I used to play marbles with the berries. Now I see that it is poisonous and a skin irritant! Didn't affect us. I've never know what it was - after 40 years of gardening!
I've seen seed mixes for wild flower meadows in garden centres. My brother-in-law did one from a packet of seeds he bought somewhere in the Cotswolds.
