    Default What is flowering well for you at the moment?

    I doubt you will believe it but I have a noticeable drop in blooms at the moment and looking back at last years cut flowers I had the same around now.

    Dahlias are now coming into their own.
    Chrysanths are only now thinking of doing something.
    Tithonia is going strong.

    Everything else is bitty or finishing. I am just being nosey and hoping to find some goodies to add to the garden to stop this repeat next year.

    Thanks for your help as always.

    The Verbena Bonariensis is amazing - lots of flowers and bees
    Last year's Begonias and geraniums are still going strong.
    Japanese anemones are a mass of flowers - love these
    Lots of hardy fuchsias.
    I'm sure there's more but its dark and I have a remembery loss

    Dahlias and rudbeckias for me. The rudbeckias seed from last years saving seem to have produced some mutant plants.

    Thank you all, that has made things seem so much more promising. Quite a few of those things are just in nursery corner and need establishing and some in the seed tin.
