Yea They are very pretty Sparaxis. I'll wait until I take out my Bellini Dahlia from the Wooden Barrel. I can plant them in there then.

What's the star in your garden right now

Still plenty of colour in the garden for mid-October, I know its not going to last much longer though :P

 My Honeysuckle is flowering now on the 13th October xD

 Penstemon still looking incredible

 Alstroemeria and Astrantia still throwing up flowers

Managed to get the rest of my Daffs potted up. Found a couple of 2L pots and that big 4L terracotta one my Cordyline came in. The rest are all 1L with 2 bulbs in each :P

I'll let the forecast rain give them a good water now!

 Just the tulips left to plant now and a free bag of Sparaxis I had with my Allium order

I want some more varities of Oriental Lily, that smell is so intoxicating, I just love it!

Definitely need to add some Dahlias to my garden also, guess I'll have to start looking at some varities to choose (will have to be a smaller one though)

and an old fashioned favourite, Gladioli. Regretted not growing those this year, such beautiful flowers when other stuff is starting to fade

Yea your probably right, they were only cheap, but now I can see the benefit of buying particular varieties.

The bulbs vary in size, mainly between 10-20cm each. I dont have many big pots to use, most are 1litre or less.

can you please tell me what this plant is ?

We seem to have had a lot of people asking what this plant it lately

I love those dangly flowers.
