My new white china dish mini pond didn’t last long as I accidently dropped it earlier in the week so I’m using the plastic plant pot saucer again.
I’ve done very little, if any, dead heading of the annual flowers – candytuft, cornflowers, cosmos, pot marigolds and sunflowers – this year leaving them to self-seed apart from the seeds I’ve collected. Since the rain last week seedlings of all these have appeared on the flower patches.
The poached egg plants I generally just leave to self seed and a carpet of seedlings have appeared. I wonder how will survive over the winter to grow and flower.
I think that this has been the only sunflower with a light coloured centre to appear this year. Not that I mind as I prefer the ones with a dark centre.
Have a good weekend, and take care!
