🍄What’s In My Garden For This Week’s #SixOnSaturday post? #GardeningTwitter #Autumn🍂

Night temperatures have dropped into single figures suddenly this week. There is an autumn chill in the air and the toadstools are in abundance out in the woods. In the garden I have been collecting seeds for next year and planting Spring bulbs. So what have I got for you this week?

First photo goes to this toadstool which popped up in my flower bed. I have been unsuccessful in identifying it from my book or the internet and I don’t have an identifier app. If anyone can help me I would be grateful. It has a sponge like appearance underneath and it looks like a Crème Brûlée on the top.

Second photo is an update on my Sedum, this week they are much pinker than last week’s photo, which I have added to the corner for comparison. Update: Julie Grows from Twitter has identified this as a Bolette, either a Bay Bolette or a Slippery Jack.

Photos three, four and five are of my dahlias which have done so well and are continuing to flower that they deserve another showing.

Lastly a before (there will be an after in a few months) photo of my Poinsettia as they begin their daily twelve hours of dark, twelve hours of light routine to get the leaves to turn red in time for Christmas. This will be my third year of doing this. I have experimented with the start dates, this year will be my earliest start time, as the previous years the plants were at their peak in January.

    • Thank you. No, I was given a small Poinsettia as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago. I kept it alive all through the Spring and summer as the new growth slowly turned green. So I tried taking 3 cuttings which rooted easily. Next year I took more cuttings when I pruned the mother plant. This year I just pruned them all to force some new leaves, then I fed them a few weeks ago. They grow quite slowly compared to some plants. I have around 20 plants now. They like a little water and plenty of sunlight. Whitefly can be a problem which I am trying to avoid. I only have red ones, but would like to experiment with other colours.

  2. Oh you are a patient person! Moving all of those poinsettia plants in and out of light – that’s some job! I’m sure it is worth it, though.
    I *love* your dahlia. I’m becoming a tiny bit obsessed with dahlia and the many different varieties! Yours are really lovely. As for mushrooms, it is so neat seeing all of the different types popping up everywhere! Love the ‘Crème Brûlée’ comparison (as it perfectly fits!).

    • The Poinsettia thing is a commitment. I get the family to check if I’ve put them to bed each night, but occasionally I forget. I fell in love with dahlias a couple of years ago after walking passed a house which had a wonderful display.
