As the Summer Draws to a close thoughts turn to next years plants and flowers.What you can try to grow for first time, or what can be grown again. I have lots of Glossy brochures with seductively gorgeous flowers.These are model flowers photographed to perfection.
The Flowers we grow aspire to look like these catalogue pictures.
Sometimes ours fall short of the glossy pictures. The soft focus, every petal perfectly formed.
I find it Therapeutic to look through each new book as I get it to see what they are selling.
David Austin Roses, Gardening Direct Autumn Planting, Fothergills, Thompson and Morgan Lillies, Van Meuwen Spring Bulbs, and the Organic Wiggly Wigglers with wild flowers, bird feed, composting bins, and of course Wormeries...
I arranged the books like a Mosaic to show the bright colours and bold lettering. It is tempting to order lots then think where they can be planted later.
As Angela from Northern California Says Never ask where they'll go. Just give into the temptation of buying plants and seeds :)
