What a beautiful autumn so far….and yet still no rain for longer than I can remember!
There is not much we can do in the garden except weed, water and deadhead. We can’t move or plant anything out until there is rain forecast, so that there is a lovely sense of leisure in the garden. The birds, bees and butterflies are in abundance in every part of the garden – I have never seen such flutterings!
In the polytunnel, the recently sown hardy annuals are growing strongly, as are the hardy perennials such as lupins, achilleas, nepeta and physostegia. There’s lots of “potting on” to be done and beds to be cleared of hardy annuals that have finished flowering.
The good weather has lulled me into thinking that summer is still with us – I haven’t even thought about buying bulbs yet and also have a list of bare root plants to be ordered.
There’s nothing like writing a blog to make you realise just how much needs done!! Must get my skates on – will keep you posted!
In the meantime, make the most of this beautiful Indian summer!
