August 2 2006 English Garden Newsletter


Welcome to the summer English Garden Newsletter

August may be late summer but there are still some beautiful flowers in an English Garden.

Sweet Rocket (Hesperis matronalis)
is a short lived perennial that has glorious blooms of scented white,pink or mauve flowers.
It is a traditional English Cottage Garden flower that has been planted since the sixteenth century.
Look out for an article coming soon on flowers that bloom in August in an English Garden.

August Tips
Keep dead heading your flowers so you get the maximium number of blooms.

Make sure your containers never dry out completely. If you are going away on holiday then ask a neighbour or friend to come in and water them for you.
Before you go if they are not too heavy then move your containers into a shady area where they will not dry out so fast.

If you are going to dry flowers then now is a good time to pick them.
Dry them in a warm place not too hot and ideally hung upside down. If you place a brown paper bag over the flower heads you will catch any seeds that fall out - ready for planting for the next year.

If you would like to make your own pot pouri August is a good time to collect your blooms. Take a look at my English Garden Pot Pouri for instructions and ideas.

Here is the latest article from the English Garden site at Bellaonline.com Thornless roses in your English Garden.
These roses are either completely thornless or have very few thorns on them. http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art20996.asp
