Argyranthemum in AugustWith a visit today by the "Red Hat Ladies" the garden was full of spring flowers. Shrubs and Orchids which usually flower from mid-September are in full display in mid August this year. Also our run of reliable showery weather has dried up, it seems , for the next few weeks.
Eupatorium was definitely a feature in late September 2012 for a book launch and garden party. It's about to burst now, as is Eranthemum pulchelum. All of this while Camellia japonica are still in flower and Magnolia liliiflora and Azaleas are fully out.
We have no Open gardens planned thank heavens because it would seem difficult to predict a best time with such different seasons.
