Wednesday 1st June.

 

After a couple of rainy days....back to the garden.

This is why its a good idea NOT to cut your lawn until mid July.

 

We have several small area of lawn which we have treated like meadows for the last 8 years.

 

This is a Greater Butterfly Orchid and it has waited all this time for the correct environment to flower. We noticed it two days ago and its scent is wonderful.

 

I am not a fan of imaculately tended lawns, in fact, I would like to see them dispatched to the history books.

 

There are lots of advantages.................

 

Imagine how much more interesting cricket would be if they were not allowed to mow the outfield!

 

We have now finished planting up the hillside garden with annuals.

 

This year we have used Cosmos, Tithonia, Nicotiana and Moluccela laevis. 

Freddie never strays far from Carole. If he can't find a comfy plant, he choses a high point.

The Bee beds on the top of the hill are a little late this year. This is because we struggled to water them during the hot spell. (its a really long way from the water source).

One of the perils of having a National Collection.

 

The red Monarda in the pot at the end of the polytunnel tropical bed was bought, as a new 'dwarf variety', from a reputable source.

 

It is actually over 7 feet tall (not including the pot) By far the tallest Monarda we have ever seen......where on earth would we plant it?

The Monarda exhibition beds, with the tropical bed in the background and Dahlias, interplanted with Agastache to the right.

 

This area will explode with colour this month.

Lots of Monardas are now in flower in the polytunnels.

The 'cow shed' is normally planted up red-white. Some years ago Carole grew some Alstromerias from seed (They were supposed to be red), At last they have flowered !!!!!!!   oops!
