My Perfumed Bristol Garden in 2016.

Posted: 19/09/2016 at 08:59

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.

In my garden this lovely Sunday in September.  I had to do some harvesting as the birds are helping themselves.  The New England asters are running amok and will need dividing in the spring.

Oh dear aym280.  Mine is south west facing in a sheltered spot.  i watered it thoroughly through the mini heatwaves we have been having.  Today has dawned another fine dry day in Bristol so hoping to get a lot done in the garden.  Better weather for folks in the east too.  Hope you all have a good day.

That white begonia has survived the last two winters outdoors as I forgot to bring it in.  Too big to go in a pot now so will have to stay out.  I am hoping someone can tell me what the prettily marked insect is!

Another fine dry day just the right temperature for working outside so should get lots done.  GW is very much worth watching now they have time to visit lots of interesting gardens and people,  I do hope they decide to keep the format,  If the cost is too much perhaps they could ditch some of the less educational and more commercially motivated programs they put on which cannot compete with the originals which get lots of freebies to advertise products.

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
