The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



The weather has been very changeable with a mixture of sun and showers, although there was a warm and dry spell mid-month.

I’ve had a busy month which didn’t leave much time for gardening. I have reduced some bigger clumps of perennials which had started to cover the path to the shed.

The grasses started to look good towards the end of the month. I planted Molinia caerulea subsp arundinacea ‘Transparent’ too near to the path so I have to duck to get to the shed. I didn’t get round to moving it in the spring. I must do it next year.

I have been growing Gaura lindheimeri ‘The Bride’ for some years. Although not reliably hardy, it usually comes through in a sheltered spot. A couple died last winter but I still have two plants which are looking good. An easy plant from seed, it flowers in its first year.

I’m disappointed that the sweet peas I grew for cutting are covered in greenfly. I’ll leave them in the garden.
