Hi folks,

I hope you enjoyed the glorious weather over the weekend :o) Here’s the list of plants featured on last week’s Gardener’s World.

Carol’s class were learning to propagate from stem cuttings with:

The 10 plants to attract bees to your gardens…
Echium Pininana (Giant viper’s bugloss)
Cirsium rivulare ‘Atropurpureum’
Ajuga reptans ’Catlin’s Giant’ (Bugle)
Echinops bannaticus (Blue globe thistle)
Monarda ‘Cambridge scarlet’ (Beebalm)
Sedum ‘Herbstfreude’ (Autumn Joy)
Verbena bonariensis
Erysimum ’Bowle’s Mauve’ (Perennial wallflower)
Tanacetum coccineum ’Robinson’s Rose’ (Pyrethrum)
Agastache ‘Firebird’

The lady from the British Clematis Society talked us through these in her garden:
Clematis ‘Pamiat Serdtsa’
Clematis integrifolia
Clematis Rebecca
Clematis montana var. rubens

Toby and Joe each planted a Clematis
Artemisia ‘Powis castle’ (Wormwood)
Hesperis matronalis var albiflora (Sweet rocket)

And Carol’s little slot was about Aquilegias this week.
Aquilegia ‘Hensot Harebell’ (Columbine)
Aquilegia longissima (Longest-spurred columbine)

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and happy gardening :o)

You're welcome :o) I was out too but remembered to record it (it took a few days to get round to watching it). At least with a recording I can pause it to catch the names :o)
