August 2019 in my garden
by Wendy Syddall
Is quite a wet place but filled with colour and some new plants. The early flowers such as poppies, lupins and foxgloves (picture below of a late flowerer) have mostly finished and the later flowers such as Japanese anemones (picture below), rudbeckia, helenium and phlox are steeling the show.
I have been busy digging out a dusky pink overgrown celone from the long border (as I call it), digging in compost and replanting with a variety of things. A lovely blue Veronica (seems quite happy in its spot),
a perennial foxglove, chocolate cosmos, dianthus and some lupin grown from seed. The lupins were very happy in the greenhouse but much less impressed with the garden.
