August in my garden 

by Wendy Syddall

I can’t believe it’s August already, this year is flying by! The garden is growing well along with the weeds, due in part to so much rain! This is making it challenging to get much gardening done and I have a list of plants to be moved and still some to be planted out from the greenhouse. Anyway, I have much to choose from in regards to what’s currently flowering so here goes: 

Half hardy Fuchsia in my little owl planter. I usually buy a small plug plant in summer for this planter and a pansy or ornamental cabbage in winter. 

New Echinacea Cheyenne and Penstamen Apple Blossom bought at Tatton flower show recently 

Sweetpeas still going strong 

New Rose Dorothy House flowering well 

Zinnia grown from seed

New Gallardia also bought at Tatton flower show

Rose Hot Chocolate
