Another brill morning.......warm already

What a lovely time of year in the garden......rich colours everywhere. Agree with Monty  when he said the "autumn" light brings out the full colours.  However, it still is very much summer but I guess light levels are diminishing 

Have good day everyone 

Rhododendrons

Tordi, how old is your plant?  New purchase or been in the  garden a while?

Looking at your leaves will indicate if there is a deficiency of iron,,magnesium, etc.  a simple spray of Epsom salts will rectify the latter. 

What's the star in your garden right now

Bamboogie, ??ou seem to enjoy plants I do.  

Removing hedychiums actually was quite a workload.  3 year old plants had huge woody and very lomg and deep roots.  Main issue was that nothing else could grow in an increasingly large area .  I guess cannas do something similar too so I divide these every 2 or 3 years
