My autumn look is based on acidanthera, rudbeckias and cosmos, and dahlias. these should flower until frost. Sedums are easily propagated and give autumn colour.

Two of my bluberry plants inexplicably died over winter. The one remaining has no pollinator, so no blueberries this year here. But I prefer blackcurrants anyway.

Too hot to be in the garden, so the hangy thing beckons and I might take Jack Reacher with me for the afternoon.

I bought a yellow arum for £2.95  and a pink one for £1.95 this morning from the fruit shop next to the caramel donut shop. Just need a good drink of water and potting on.

You can make lots of new plants. Take "pipings" or strong unflowered shoots, about 10cm long. Insert in gritty compost, water in and leave. They should root  in a few weeks and then be potted on.  You can induce it to flower by giving it tomato food or something high in potash.
