Sorry about the repeat of my yellow poppy picture - I really must have an early lunch as weariness is showing. Two things I noticed on my safari; The Chelsea chop does work on sedum spectabile if you want late flowers to feed the butterflies in October and yellow sunflowers look knock- out against Oxford Blue paint. It is nearly nine months into Bristol's Year as Green Capital of Europe and I am very pleased with my contributions. The biodiversity in my garden has increased a great deal since I joined the Secret Gardening Club with their policy of eco-friendly packaging and I have managed without coach trips to pollute with diesel fumes all year. My produce is and has been appreciated by friends and family and me - no food miles at all and all organic.
