Looking Good in the Garden in mid-September24th September 2009 • In The Garden • Stephanie Donaldson
The zinnias have outgrown the slugs and are providing brilliant posies for the table
The chillis are looking exceedingly cheerful in an old metal container
Bishop of Llandaff dahlia is ubiquitous for a good reason – it’s gorgeous and the slugs don’t like the dark foliage
Dahlia Chimborazo is another favourite
Geranium Rozanne has been flowering it socks off for months and shows little sign of slowing down
Our ballerina apple tree (narrow, upright) has a huge crop of James Grieve apples ready for picking this weekend
It’s always a surprise when the autumn flowering crocus (colchicums) suddenly emerge.
