Six on Saturday 14/10/17

Sometimes you just get one of those weeks when you are glad it’s the weekend, it was one of those weeks this week! Well to be fair, it was only one day, rest of the week was very enjoyable. Plants and gardens are so much areas for us to enjoy and relax in, to get away from the stressful things in life. Hopefully a spell weeding (yes yes I do have weeds in my garden)  and cutting back the odd plant, will recharge the old batteries ready for another wonderful varied job that is my work. 

Well this week, my six on Saturday comes from my own garden, that I will be honest and say it’s looking a little shabby at the moment, some plants still flowering well, just needs a good tidy up and sort out. Hoping to start on the kids playhouse next weekend but we will see what happens. So anyway I hope you enjoy them 

Gaura ‘Rosy Jane’ I think I have featured this plant before earlier in the year but she is still flowering very well and adding a bit of colour into the area it’s growing
Did a feature a while ago about propagating semperviens and here they are growing away pretty strongly and looking good to be planted out once the green roof is all set up
Rosa ‘Iceberg’ this is one of the only remaining plants from the garden when we moved in 7yrs ago nearly, it’s still going strong and flowering well.
Well yes this may look like a cardboard box filled with paper but it is indeed a box of flowers that will delight me from January to May/June with floral delights. Yep you guessed it, it’s my bulb order! Must get planting!
Geranium ‘Nimbus’ still flowering and looking good in my front garden, love this geranium it’s just brilliant value for money!
Aster I mean Symphyotrichum ‘Jenny’ a great compact plant that’s in its 2nd year and its beautiful, gives my border a little boast at this time of year

I hope you enjoyed my 6 on Saturday from my garden. If you did please checkout other people’s 6 on the memes founder website 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, have fun in the garden

    Aren’t Gauras wonderful? Mine is still going strong, too. I like that ‘Rosy Jane’. Must look out for one. And that bulb box is a familiar sight. There are two of them sitting on the table beside me. It’s a good reminder to have them close by, but it isn’t getting them planted. 🙂

    Phew. A nice six of which I’ve already got five. Must chase the bulb order to complete the set. Gaura will probably leave the garden this year. I can never over-winter them and have decided not to keep on trying.

      Yes I suppose the colder and wetter weather in Wales makes it pretty difficult to over winter them 🙁 so lovely though aren’t they, any news on the bulb order?

    Geraniums and asters . . . I do not see enough of them. I know we can grow geraniums, but I have not seen them in a long time. Gaura grows TOO well. It can get away and into places where it should not go. I suppose that is a good thing in gardens that do not get much added to them.

    1. thomashort says:

      Gaura is borderline tender with us so is not as friendly although that said she does apppear in some odd places it was certainly not planted! Yes must be some geraniums that will survive with you? Maybe maderense?

      1. tonytomeo says:

        Geraniums survive here, they are just unpopular. Trends do not make much sense.

      2. thomashort says:

        That’s a shame about the unpopular bit but yes they make no sense at all do they

  4. Loved the promise of the box of bulbs, it’s SO exciting!

    Catching up on my comments, it’s been a busy weekend. Lovely Six. My gaura is still going strong, flowering away. Didn’t realise it was a bit on the tender side. I shall give it a good mulch when it’s finished. I do have a we cuttings as insurance (i know! steps back in amazement!)

      Lol I wouldn’t expect anything else fella 😀 it’s worth it, it’s the damp and wet that does the damage sadly. I would just cut it back halfway and pray 😀👍
