Gardening With Nature in the UK.
A blog about allowing Nature to help with the gardening.
She's better at it than I am.
Chciałabym mieć jeszcze tyle kwitnących kwiatków w ogródku. Pozdrawiam.I wish I had had so much blooming flowers in the garden. Yours.
I was very late planting my baskets and tubs this year, hence the late blooms.
Such lovely colourful flowers you have! I thought my lilies were flowering late this year but looking at yours, mine were early... Maybe I should do what you did, plant some lilies every year much later than supposed to, so I can extend the lily season, what a great idea :-)
It was purely by accident. I came across some lily bulbs for sale late in the season. They were in good condition, so I bought them.
Beautiful selection of blooms and some nice ones for this time of year. Love your notes, it's so important to make note of changes needed.
If I don't write things down, I tend to forget.
I would go as far as to say the Hydrangeas faded blooms looks equally as good as the fresh ones. I am very tempted to try these Cyclamen which you have, in a sheltered spot of our garden.
I would highly recommend the hardy cyclamen. And if you let them set seed, they spread where they are happy. Apparently ants spread the seed, although I haven't actually witnessed this myself.
Really pretty flowers and they all look so healthy too.
I think it's all the rain that has kept them happy.
I really like osteospermum - I found a lovely deep peachy coloured one this year but he wanted £7 for it so I decided to look elsewhere - I never found one the same! Lots of beautiful flowers in your garden. Great blog name by the way :)
Hi Pat, thanks for visiting.I buy Osteospermum as plug plants from the seed companies in spring. They grow quickly, and are a lot cheaper than buying full size plants later in the season.
Lovely to see so much colour still. The Hydrangea is beautiful, I assume you have some acid in your soil. I can only get mine to bloom blue/mauve by putting something in the water but I soon got fed up with that so they are always pink now :-) The little Violas are so pretty.
My soil is naturally alkaline, but I throw a lot of spent compost on it, especially around the hydrangeas. They come out a different colour every year.
My favourite is the tongue-twister lily.
Mine too. Pity about its name.
There are so many plants still blooming their socks off. I love the photo of Hydrangea and the different stages of the flower development. Fabulous!
I was very late planting out pots this year, and I mean very late. But luckily, it has resulted in a late display.
Violas are lovely flowers and so are begonias and of course .... You have a beautiful garden. Thank you for sharing it with us.
I love these violas, and they were on special offer too. Love a bargain.
