Autumn colour has come late to our garden this year. But over the past weeks it has arrived in profusion. From really fiery reds to golden buttery yellows and every shade of russet-orange in between.
We have late flowers dotted around too. Electric blue salvia uliginosa, deeply golden goblets of sternbergia, autumn crocus in shades of lilac and a beautiful palest pink schizostylis.
At last I have a proper potting shed. I can now move all my potting paraphernalia out of the greenhouse into the shed. This has given me enough space in the greenhouse to add more staging which I have started to put to good use already with autumn sown sweetpeas and root-cuttings from my favourite Japanese anemones. Late cuttings I took from some tender plants are now advanced enough to come out of the greenhouse and be the first proud occupants of my new cold frames.
On the A215 front ... I've had my first TMA result. Percentage was OK, but I thought some of the tutor's comments were a little subjective. Our tutor group forum is still dismal, which is a real disappointment!
