Late September colour in the garden 

by Wendy Syddall

Here is what is currently flowering/ has pretty stems in my garden. 

The first picture is of a helenium, in fact there are 2 the same next to each other in what I call the long border (my inspiration is Arley Hall in Northwich and I’m hoping to take my friend next week whose never been). They are new and the first time I’ve tried to grow these plants. I hope they do well for us, the colour is one I love to see in gardens. They have replaced a white daisy which goes mad. 

A Euphorbia with lovely red stems. Monty on BBC Gardeners world told us to cut the flower stems down on Friday but actually I think they look nicer now than when flowering!

This bulb is all over our garden no matter how much we try to dig it out! White sweetpeas in the background are above ready to be composted now but have been lovely.

This Persicaria Red Dragon has gone mad with all the rain this year and is growing over the grass
