At last summer has arrived….in early autumn !!

It’s 20.C and rising, warm air is circulating in the early morning sunshine, spiders webs glisten with the dew and late summer herbaceous plants are providing a real show to talk about. Nerine bowdenii produces attractive umbels of flowerheads on stiff stems. A native to the Drackensburg mountains of South Africa, yet it does well here in the uk with a little protection. Helianthus ‘Lemon Queen’ and Rudbeckia hirta ‘Black eyed Susan’from North America are star performers this time of year along with Salvias, Dahlias, Kniphofia rooperi, Fuchia, Grasses, Cleome , Aconitum, Eucomis and Cosmos. Who said summer glory fades in late August, well come and see the garden right now ,it’s stunning.
