Six on Saturday- 26/08/17

Well happy Saturday folks and I hope you have a great week at home, work or just enjoying the garden. It’s never seems like it indeed a week in between theses 6 on Saturday blogs, but this week seemed even shorter for some reason! 

This week I am going to cheat (but it is ok as The propagator said it was) and use a clients garden to bring you my 6. I do feel a little guilty about using their garden but it is a little bit part of me, I didn’t design it but I have been working there for over 4years now and enjoyed nurturing the garden from a recently designed main garden to the maturing garden it is now. It’s about 1.5 acres inside, thinish soil over chalk and it is a beautiful site. I hope you will enjoy my 6 from this garden

Aster x frikarii ‘Monch’. Happens to one of my favourite asters, flowers for such a long time, with these beautiful large flowers just give me buzz.

Clematis viticella ‘Betty Corning’ Again this is one of favourite forms of Clematis, just love the delightful lightly scented flowers that are borne for 3months in the end, making it well worth the money

Geranium ‘Orion’ The largest flower size of all hardy geraniums and flowers for such a long time, from May to the first frost.

Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Goldstrum’ more commonly know as black eyed Susan. Just a ray of bright sunshine in the garden at this time of year, I just love it, doesn’t matter if it’s bright sunshine or a dull wet day, it just lifts your spirits!

I just love the effect yew hedges have in the garden, once trimmed, they look like a green sculptured walls, just the best backdrop to any garden or border. The line of soldiers here protecting the path leading to the front door. They just add so much to the garden here

Eupatorium maculatum atropurpureum. Again a great plant, loved by bees and butterflies, this purple form of Joe Pye Weed grows up to 1.5m in height and just coming into flower now.
I hope you enjoyed my 6 on Saturday! If you did please checkout other people’s 6 on the memes founder website https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com/ I love seeing other people’s plants and what’s happening in their gardens. Why not give it ago yourself next week and give me a shout so I can take a look

Until next week, may your fingers be green!
