Lots of colour in the garden this month, and most things will look good right up until the first frost (which will hopefully be late - end of October would be nice).
Most of the plants pictured are perennial and will die down in the winter and come back each year - great value.
Pictured is Echinacea Purpurea / Coneflower. It's looking fab with its fashionable pink flowers, and provides some height in the border without the need for staking.
|Top left to right: Lobelia Fan Burgundy, Achillea 'Terracotta' is still going strong, Hydrangea is coming into full flower, and Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm'.
|Top left to right: Cosmos grown from seed are only recently coming into flower; trailing lobelia (annual bedding plant); Echinacea Purpurea / Coneflower, and agapanthus coming into flower.
|The roses may be covered in blackspot but they have been full of blooms from Spring through Summer, and will keep going through Autumn. Quite hardy plants.
It's been a coldish, but great summer. I'm definitely not ready for it to end!
