Here are 6 things going on in my garden this week.
Hardy geraniums from Margery Fish Plant Nursery
I bought loads of hardy geraniums at the famous Margery Fish Nursery at East Lambrook Manor Gardens in Somerset last weekend – my favourite garden ever. Will be planting them on top of tulips in pots in November sometime.
Leaves collected from the street
Piles of leaves I have collected from surrounding streets and carried back to my lair. As they rot down I add them to my compost bins. Fantastic stuff.
Ferns and grasses
Planted up my yellow pots after advice from Harriet Rycroft of My Garden School. Bought the grasses she suggested from Knoll Gardens and here they are, Anemanthele lessoniana, Uncinia rubra and Imperata cylindrica Rubra mixed in with ferns. I’ll add small daffs when they arrive from Crocus.
Wet leaves from the apple tree
Leaves again – look at these lovely ones just lying around waiting for me to gather them up. A person can get very excited about wet leaves – honestly it is quite weird.
Acer in a pot so that I can move it around out of the wind
An Acer Palmatum Sango-Katu, or could be Orange Dream, not sure which, from Norfield Nurseries. It’s doing quite well in a 3L pot and just hanging onto its leaves.
Colours in the bricks same as autumn colours of the grass in the pot
The yellows and pinks in the bricks are matching the shades in the grass, hakonechloa macra “Aureola” turning into its autumn colours.
Thankyou to The Propagator for hosting this theme and you can see other people’s Six there.
