Well certainly not the last 2 winters. But I am hopeful this year.
We have a lovely show of late blooms just now as November settles in.
The Schizostylis, Kaffir Lilies, have bloomed as never before, I take it to be the mild weather and lots of sunshine. They are South Africans so love the sun. Lovely satiny blooms of red and pink.
Of course Dahlias are at their best in autumn. We still have a good show of Bishop of Llandaff and Fascination, and the latter with its orange and red colouring looks lovely in autumn groups.
Rhododendrons have become confused and we have had a few flowers on a good few of them….cilipense, impeditum and Elizabeth.
Next years roses have just arrived bare rooted from David Austin, they look excellent and Don is potting them today.
