Well well well welcome November! With its gun powder and plot! I love this time of year, to the non gardener, it seems the the start of the end of the gardening year, to the gardeners, they know it’s the start of next years display, with bulbs being planted, plants divided, seeds being sourced and sown and evergreens shaped. It’s these things that shaping my six on Saturdays for the next few weeks.
I hope you enjoyed my 6 on Saturday from both mine and a clients garden. 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

Love your idea of putting fossils and Alpines together! And your Pyracantha is stunning.
Thank you they just work so well together too 👍
This makes a change. I’m usually envious of what’s in flower in others’ gardens as I look at my equivalents that went over ages ago. It’s a reversal this month as all my sedums are in full flower. And I’d forgotten that, last year, I dug out some of the pink ones (I had too many of those) and replaced them with some darker, brilliant reds. Which has been a nice surprise this year. Though I forgot to Chelsea chop so they’re all floppy. I’m trying to decide whether to get a gun and shoot all the b***dy blackbirds or dig out the Pyracantha. It’s just too much work for no berry display! Loving the idea of plant+fossil pots. Maybe in a few years I’ll have some Halloweeners’ skeletons.
You’re in quite the murderous mood there John. Trick or treaters poisoned and buried in the borders, blackbirds shot. Terrifying stuff!
Lol you are worrying me fella, semperivens growing out of a skull might be an interesting effect! Very jealous of the sedums mine finished weeks ago! Have to be honest if mine didn’t berry I would of dug it out by now, don’t really like them, positives though is it puts people off ringing the door bell!
Bit of bulb planting done, excellent. Tulips on my list of things to do today. I’m already fed up with it…
Not finished those bulbs yet, had hours of light
beautiful photos! This is my favorite time of year!
Oh, look at all those pots, neatly planted up with bulbs. Very satisfying!
Lol indeed it is I love choosing the best one in flower and putting it somewhere noticeable
My tiny sorbus were just planted last autumn. They did not do much this year, but Ihope they dispersed their roots well. I really do not know what to expect from it. I have never seen one before.
They do take a little time to get going, these sulked for 2 years and not growing away to quick, well worth the wait berries are stunning as well👍
I am not expecting much from them. I was told that some people keep them as big shrubbery, which would be fine with me. English hawthorn grows here, but is not happy about it. It can also be kept down, just because it is not too vigorous. That is actually an advantage for reaching the berries.
Fossils and alpines look like a good combo.
Thank you 😊 it’s fun to do with the kids too
