I was only going to make a few changes for next year, apart from rotating various vegetables as usual. I’m going to move the rhubarb, and probably the strawberries, but over the past week or so the list has grown. I won’t go into details now as, needless to say, I keep changing my mind so will detail them as and when I do them.
I was tidying up around the rosemary, which is in the stone feature sitting just about in the middle of the plot, when I noticed that there were lots of rosemary beetles on it. As you can see they are colourful but not good news. Rather than even try to get rid of them I’ll wait and see what happens, then if need be replace it with something else next spring.
Another dahlia flower has appeared on the same plant as this one, which by the way is not Zingaro but Caribbean Sunset, but is a noticeably different colour!
Apologies for getting the name wrong, and this one is Zingaro which I grew last year. I think that I shall grow a few more dahlias next year.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend!
