We’re halfway through September and I’ve only just picked the first bunch of homegrown flowers from plot 15C! The flowers have been blooming beautifully since late Spring but I’ve just been a tad busy visiting Wales to actually get round to picking any. I have to admit that I’m rather happy with my first bunch..
A few of my favourites including the beautifully bright zinnias, the delicate scabiousa, yummy calendulas and delightful dahlias. The queen of the bunch has to be the verbena bonariensis, my all time favourite perennial and here’s a few reasons why.. It flowers every year, gives beautiful height to borders, still looks pretty well after its bloomed and it matches my shed perfectly!
