Spurred on by Elaine at A Woman of the Soil I went out to tidy up the greenhouse yesterday. I need to get all the geraniums and fuschias lifted, I still have some cuttings to take and some seeds to sow. LOADS to do .... so why does it look exactly the same today as it did yesterday? How did I get side tracked so easily? Why does this always happen whenever I am gardening??
The sun was shining so collecting the sweetpea pods and planting a few cyclamen seemed like a much better idea!
The roses are looking good and smelling delightful!
The leaves are not so good!
I will be prunning most of them right back this year after listening to Ann Bird of the Rose Society at the Garden Club. I have cut them back in the past but not nearly enough according to her. She REALLY prunes!
Here are my Autumn favourites for this week:
The Sedum takes over the kitchen border. I remembered to put the plant supports in this year so there isn't a bald patch in the middle! So easy to grow: cuttings are blooming all down the lane and in neighbours' gardens.
Wild birds soon find the Pyracantha berries.
