I was able to spend a welcome couple of hours on the plot last Wednesday, which was sunny and surprisingly mild.
I’d bought 15 tulip Golden Apeldoorn bulbs at the trading shed last Sunday for only £1-50 which I planted in a large container, and should look good when they flower.
Apart from that I was just pottering as there really is nothing more that needs doing before the onset of winter. There is still some colour thanks to the Twinkling Stars which I have found out are aster pilosus var. pringlei Monte Cassino, and the last few roses Pretty Lady.
The dogwood (cornus alba Sibirica) leaves have turned bright red and have started to drop exposing the red stems for which this plant is noted.
Have a good week!
