I can’t believe the summer’s almost over, I’ve been so busy that the blog has been neglected. They say you shouldn’t mention that you’ve been a poor blogger but how can you not?
Very busy month and rather stressful – we’re knocking three rooms into one at home, 3 weeks in and still like a building site…will keep you posted on progress – windows and new kitchen going in end of September so has to be finished by then.
On the flower front, been busy with weddings, workshops and orders.
On the garden side of things, my cut flower perennial beds need a major overhaul – there are too many plants not pulling their weight and taking up too much room – globe artichokes, anchusa, sidalcea bianca, achillea ptarmica The Pearl (it produces a tonne of flowers but as soon as they fully open, they look dirty as the centre of the button is a sort of beige colour. This means that there is a very short window for cutting).
I’m sticking to the stalwarts – toadflax, catmint, centranthus, phlox, veronicas, feverfew. I’ve had four good years now to try things out and am going to completely re-organise my beds. Watch this space!
Sometimes the simplest things are the prettiest.
