Another week goes by of lockdown, it had to happen, it was inevitable. We carry on though. Good luck to all and have a super weekend and the week ahead too. happy gardening.
Here we go another Six on Saturday. Look forward to seeing many more from around the world too.
1) Colour from Winter Jasmine. The Jasmine with the bright yellow flowers brings some colour to the garden on this small part of the fence. At one time this would appear all the way down the fence line, but over the years it has been short lived in parts. Due to overgrowing Phygelius, it can be little too much sometimes at taking over. Further down the garden I have begun the digging out of this somewhat invasive perennial.
2) Holly, Variegated. Lots of new shoots and such a winner with the colour it brings to the garden. It got a little smashed about while there was Ash tree being removed a few weeks a go, it was in the wrong place so the tree had to go. Magnificent trees. The Holly will survive and to think this was in the front garden triangle bed where there is a Forsythia now.
3) Variegated Ivy. I have had this a very long time it sits in a pot that’s in a chimney pot. Again a bright cheery view from afar. As it is situated next to the greenhouse right now and the sun gets to shine upon those glowing leaves.
4) Betula, Silver Birch. Snow Queen. This Silver Birch was chosen for few reasons. Firstly, it has this white bark it is almost blinding when the sun shines on it. Secondly it grows vertically with many branches making it less of a wide canopy. It’s now leafless. it will be in February the catkins will appear before the new leaves.
5) New plants. I was working in the garden and I here shout. There’s strange fellow with a box, it’s for you and off he went. When I opened it this is what was nicely packed inside. Phormium, Fillependula- Moonshine, Rosa- Just Joey and looks like four Grasses. Now to get them planted!
6) Calendula, Lemon Zest. I planted several of these seeds back in late summer, just to have something that might flower this year, not really expecting much. Here we have a bud that has a chance to bloom this year. Hoping they can last the winter to bring some cheer in the garden during late Spring.
So that’s this weeks Six on Saturday. Whatever you’re doing be safe and ensure that you enjoy your autumn gardening. Of course as always our host of Six on Saturday is The Propagator.
