Another job for the autumn (or earlier) will be to hack out this laburnum branch, which has cracked and is now dangling right over the wildflower patch.
I’ve been pulling out a load of grass and bindweed which has come up on the bank at the back of the garden. The foxglove seedlings are still there (and are quite a bit bigger) but look as though slugs have eaten quite a lot. They are meant to be really poisonous so perhaps that’s why they haven’t disappeared altogether.
The fennel will also need cutting right back – it’s taken over the rose garden a bit.
The heucheras will need pruning too, once they’ve stopped flowering. Most of the ones I put on the bank have died but this one is still going well.
There are some orange bulb flowers that have come up and are very pretty but I have no idea what they are. If you know, please could you tell me?
