End of October round up

Strangely there wasn't a lot of change during the month, most of the flowers that were mentioned in the September round up were still in flower at the end of October. The ones we have said goodbye to are the Geum and the Japanese Anemone.

Weather

There was one extremely windy day - as you can see it registered two on the plant pot scale.

The square container has only blown over once before.

There are still a few hardy Geraniums flowering. Although this Rozanne has lots of buds, there is still only ever one or two out at a time.

Flowering

  • Rudbeckia
  • Geum
  • Salvia "Wendy's wish"
  • Salvia "Hot lips"
  • Salvia "Radio red"
  • Eryngium
  • Geranium
  • Penstemon
  • Verbena

Bought

  • Cyclamen magic flame x2. I bought two of these and planted them around the holly bush area. They are not so easy to see from the house.
  • Sidalcea "Elsie Heugh". I saw some Sidalcea with flowers on and thought that would be good. So I picked one without flowers, just buds. I suspect that they will not open. Oh well.
