I’ve hardly mentioned…

the pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites this year, and only shown a few pictures, as they didn’t fare well though the dry, hot summer. Thankfully the recent cooler, damp weather seems to have revived them and are now flowering again.

  

There’s the full range of colours –  yellow, orange and biscuit – in various combinations, along with a few of the creamy-white variety Snow Princess. 

    

It’s the horticultural society show on Saturday and this year I’m really struggling to find anything suitable so it looks like I’ll only have a handful of entries at most.  Once again I’ll be there all day helping and stewarding, which I’m looking forward to.

Have a good weekend!

    I like all the colours that Flighty’s Favourites come in. Many of my plants haven’t done so well this year, they were somewhat neglected whilst we were on holiday in the hot, dry summer and never recovered. Good luck at the weekend, I hope the entries you do have do well.

    Lovely to see them flowering well again. No doubt lots of people will be struggling to find perfect entries for the show. I hope you have a few things you can enter. Good luck, and I hope it’s an enjoyable day! CJ xx

    Your Flighty’s favourites have certainly perked up. I sowed some at the herb garden and they are slowly showing signs of life.
    Good luck with the horticultural society show. It sounds as though the hot summer will have many gardeners searching for specimens to enter.

  6. Lovely to see the marigolds, such nice colours.
    Enjoy the horticultural society show on Saturday.

    All the best Jan
