Best way to get Japanese anemones is beg a division from a friend who has them in the spring. They need dividing every two or three years and people soon run out of space for them. i find chrysanthemums and asters give a good show now and of course dahlias are still in full bloom but this year, having grown 70 plugs of pelargoniums and 70 Begonia semperflorens i still have loads of blooms. The bees and butterflies do not seem to mind they are exotic and drink their nectar where they can.
Today is the first in ages that is dull and drizzly but that will save on the watering chore! Still very mild though.
