🍃The Last Saturday Of Gardening In October. #SixOnSaturday #GardeningTwitter #AutumnGarden

It’s the last Saturday in October. We change our clocks tonight too, so we will get a little longer daylight in the mornings for just a short time. Plus, I shall have an extra hour in bed tomorrow morning!🛏

What is flowering inside and out in my house and garden this week?

Busy Lizzie Cuttings

I was disappointed with the Busy Lizzies this year, they didn’t enjoy the heat, some bolted, some died; it wasn’t their best show. So I took some cuttings a few weeks ago which I hope to keep going as stock for next summer’s pots. These have taken off and are showing me what they could have been like in a moderate English summer.

Poinsettia Update

Here is an update on my Poinsettias which I showed you a few weeks ago as they began their 12/12 dark and light training to turn the leaves red. This is the progress after about 6 weeks.

Sharp Leaved Mahonia

Third photo is of my spiky leaved Mahonia which is now coming into flower.

Christmas Flowering Cactus

Next photo shows my Christmas Flowering Cactus which looks ready to flower even though we have about 7 weeks until the festive weekend.

Japanese Anemone

The fifth photo is from the Japanese Anemone which I recently bought. It is just going over, but hopefully by next year it will have settled in.

Shasta Daisy

Final photo is of a yellow Shasta Daisy, also a recent purchase.

I’m hoping to get to the Longstock water gardens for a belated visit this afternoon. If I’m lucky I might get a few useful photos for next week’s post.

  1. When I lived in the UK, I had such a pretty Christmas Cactus at my desk at work. Sadly I had to leave it behind when I moved back to the US. Yours is gorgeous. We don’t change our clocks here in Arizona, and it’s nice not to have to go through that change twice a year.

  2. Oh your busy lizzies are lovely now that they are happy! What a strange summer we had. And your Poinsettia is coming along really nicely! Good for you! We have had so much rain lately, that I have not been out in my garden much at all. Thankfully, though, there are still things growing! 🙂

  4. Your Christmas Flowering Cactus could of course be a Thanksgiving Cactus! Mine is in bud too. The Thanksgiving cactus has pointy edges; the Christmas cactus has smooth, round edges.

  5. Well done with your poinsettia, its looking really good. My white Christmas cactus is now covered in buds so will be flowering in a couple of weeks, but my pink one always flowers later.
