I haven’t done much in the garden the last week, been otherwise occupied. However, this weekend, probably Saturday as it will rain Sunday, I shall begin the start of planting new spring flowering bulbs. Something many of us will be doing. This week it’s a grassy tale for Six on Saturday. One of which is attracted by a cat! The lawn has had night time visitors that has holes in the lawn and bare earth dug over and trampled. So much for hoeing. No doubt visited by badgers, suspected this some while ago when there was a large amount of bark dug over. Any way …..
… it’s time for Six on Saturday.
1) Grass, Pennisetum Alopecuriodes ‘Hameln’.
A cat has taken a liking to this grass by eating it!!! Doesn’t seem to have taken too much of a bite out the grass. This grows quite big so will either move it or divide it before it becomes a problem. It’s not flowered this year so expect next year to have some flowers.
2) Grass, ‘Intense Blue Festuca Glauca’.
Not as blue, now more grey, but set off well by the yellow of surrounding plants.
3) Hydrangea, ‘Vanille Fraise’.
4) Grass, name unknown!
This can look a bit messy from time to time but puts on an impressive display and looks good when the wind blows it around.
5) Digitalis – White Foxglove purperea albureum.
This plant has grown and grown and grown, all leaf! No flower! Hopefully, a spectacular display to come next year.
6) Heuchera ‘Rio’.
This is a few years old now and this year it began looking very sick. So I replanted in a pot and gave it a chance to recover. It’s come back okay too. Now in the ground and no doubt ready to establish well over the years to come.
That’s it for this week’s Six on Saturday. Whatever you’re doing be safe and ensure that you enjoy your gardening or what ever you do. To our host of Six on Saturday, The Propagator, thank you to him. Pop over to see the delights on his blog and view blogs from around the world. Until the next week’s #SixonSaturday, all the best. May pop in with the odd Post of the Day, too. Watch out for occasional view of the garden in development on Fridays. (Last update: Friday 9th July 2021)
