Hi artjak, didn't really ever think about them before. When I moved here, I was so excited about growing flowers. Last year the garden had a major upheaval and a  large bed was dug up and down for a potting shed. It since become a mini veg patch in raised beds.

Saw Monty on GW and saw how easy they would be and they don't need any looking after So they now live in the veg patch

What did you do in your garden today?

Had a lovely time this afternoon, pointed on a few bits and pieces, everything is putting on growth. One of the morning glories has gone in it had started to attach itself to the frame. Still wondering where on earth I'm going to put the all the nasturtians. New bag of compost has been bought and put down the first of the pee gravel on the path

I like the yellow eremurus Wintersong, not seen or heard of it before. Sounds liek y

Great picture Birdy, I love walled gardens

Hello

Which seeds can I sow now for Autumn/Winter flowers?

Posted: 07/06/2013 at 17:15

Hi Winnie,the only thing I can think of are winter flowering pansies or violas

Colour!

Posted: 07/06/2013 at 09:58

I like purples, blues and whites and some yellows mainly but saying that I'm still in the stage of growing lots of different plants, generally if it flowers I'm happy. The result is that the garden is full of different colours but for me it works.

I know what you mean fidget about the sweet rocket, it's been a good year for them

 

Watering

I water when I can, if you have small pots I find that giving them a good bottom drink seems to cut down on the watering a bit

I don't have a greenhouse so do all my growing in cold frames, they aren't the traditional on the floor types, more like sturdy  mini greenhouses with shelves so you can move things about. OH made them out of bits of wood etc covered with thick plastic sheeting so they can be closed.

Summer has arrived
