Hello to you

How is your garden? what do you have still in flower?

Amongst the flowers still in bloom in my garden are the sedums, cosmos, Michaelmas daisies, pansies, a few roses and a potentilla that has done really well this year - it still has a few blooms on it.

The honeysuckle is covered with gorgeous red berries and also the hollies - I am not sure whether this is a sign of a cold winter in the offing or not. The foxgloves that I planted this summer for flowering next year are doing well.

I have put in my winter flowering pansies which last and last as long as you deadhead them. Wallflowers and forget-me-nots have gone for next spring and don't forget - it is not too late to plant spring flowering bulbs to create a cheering display next year.

I like to plant a variety of daffodils, which means I get a longer display of flowers. I also plant mixtures of the large flowering crocus - each year another bit of the garden gets planted up with them.

It is good to have daffodils, snowdrops, crocuses planted somewhere near your front door in pots or in the borders - that way you get to see their lovely blooms every day.

If you have left plants to seed then collect the seeds now if you haven't already and tidy up perennials but there is no need to cut them back until early spring.

Gladioli should have been dug up by now and tucked away in a dry frost free space until next spring.

There is still time to plant shrubs and trees before winter sets in and if your weather is mild you can finish sowing hardy annuals where you want them to flower next year. Remember to mark where you have sown them so there are not disturbed in the spring.

English Gardens always have some fruit trees or bushes so if you haven't got any yet take a look at specialist fruit growers catalogues. You can get very small tress and bushes some that do especially well in pots - just plant one or two there is nothing like picking your own sun warmed fruit - traditional English Garden fruits are apples, pears or plums - and there are many varieties to choose from plus ones to siut every location.
