Warmer today and a bit brighter so should get a good day's gardening in. I found my latest order from SGC on the kitchen doorstep this morning when I got up and just had a phonecall to say my new compost is being delivered tomorrow so all I need now is Crocus to deliver my new border fork and I will be all set for a busy November.
My newest plants from SGC are gorgeous as usual -one each of Alyssum saxatile Gold Bullet, Centranthus ruber coccineus, Agapanthus umbellatus White Umbrella and Lychnis haageana Molten Lava. Th last is in flower and there were squeals of delight when I saw it - such a pretty cheerful plant for the front of the border and the lychnis tribe do so well in Bristol! After all one is called the Bristol flower. They must love our alkaline clay. Here is its picture.
