We've a light frost forecast for tonight which means the possibility of a lovely sunny day tomorrow. There's always a positive!
October is a great time of year for red in the garden and the Cornus dogwood shrub is a fantastic Autumn/Winter plant. Its leaves have turned from green to red, and the leaves will soon fall off to show bright red stems, which bring a welcome splash of colour through out winter. You can see the bright red stems in the photo.

Below: another red in the garden this month - Sedum Autumn Joy.

Below photo was taken 8 Sept 2012.
Its great to see colours change and become more vibrant this time of year!

Below: Aster beginning to flower, and looks nice with the Sedum.
|When to divide a Sedum - well when it splits like the one above. Of course with all the rain we've had, the base of the plant is covered in moss!|
