Yesterday was my favourite autumn plant fair so OH and I went there for a gander and some lunch. Was very restrained with my buying - 3 heuchera Georgia Plum and 3 persicaria amplexicaulis Amethyst, 35 Thalia daffs, 30 nectaroscordums and 15 leucojum bulbs.
Today I've planted the heuchera in a sunny sheltered spot at the front and then forked over a bit of cleared bed near the pond and planted out some large, double orange hemerocallis given me by a friend and some filipendulas lifted from another bed. They can spread as much as they like as long as they doen't swamp the new persicarias which I've planted in front along with some foxgloves and silver leaved pulmonarias I have saved from other beds. Stuck some of the Thalia daffs in between and then had to come in and clean up for a committee meeting.
Rain arrived as forecast at about 7pm and is due to stay for teh rest of this week so I shall do things like potting on of seedlings and clearing of old toms in the greenhouse and my patchwork class homework.
Really like the idea of a white marsh marigold. Must look out for those.
