🌺Hot Pinks For The Heatwave. Latest From My English Garden for #SixOnSaturday #GardeningTwitter #Flowers #GrowYourOwnVeg

We are well into our second heatwave experience of the summer with the drought continuing. For other parts of the world these summer temperatures are normal as is the lack of rain, but England is usually cooler and wetter. I can tell you that there is often a cool damp spell in the first week of August, but not this year. What is still surviving in the garden?

Six photos from my garden
Six On Saturday August 13th

First photo is of a hot pink Gladioli, sister to the purple one included in last week’s post. However, it needs admiring quickly as the dry made it fade before it was fully out.

Next pink specimen is of this Echinacea Purpurea (cone flower), this was a brought on from a parent plant purchased last year and separated to be nurtured to full growth. The parent plant has yet to show signs of flowering while this one has several buds.

Third photo is of what I hope is evidence of leaf cutter bees. Some of my roses have had small circles and semi-circles cut from their leaves. I have been stalking the plants to spot the bees but haven’t seen any. I hope the holes are not from weevils instead!🤔

Fourth photo is of my King Edward potato harvest. I had just 10 potato seeds, these are the produce of 6 of them as the other 3 I planted in a felt grow bag and I harvested them earlier. Not a bad haul from a few plants. The dry was pulling the soil away from the tops and exposing the top ones to the light making them green.

Fifth photo is of my onions. I pulled these so that I didn’t have so much watering to do. There are a mix of sizes in white or red. They may have grown a bit larger if we had had a wetter season.

Last photo goes to the multi-headed hydra which is one of my sunflowers. It has now grown far above the fence. It has a huge stem which I prop up against the wind.

🍅🌽Harvest Time In My English Garden. #SixOnSaturday #GardeningTwitter #GrowYourOwnVeg

This week I’ve been helping out on the farm, first off last Saturday afternoon with an emergency caesarean section calving, then a few days later with the corn cart. In my garden I have also been harvesting. The beans have dried up, but the greenhouse is in full swing.

Vegetables and flowers from my garden

First photo is of my tomatoes (S. Pierre). They have been enjoying the heat and are the largest ones I’ve ever grown. Better still, they are very tasty too!

Second photo is of my Sweetcorn (Goldcrest) (the camera didn’t do the green leaves justice) but it is the kernels that are important. I had eight plants which I got in the ground very early.

Third photo goes to some Evening Primrose, these self seed all over. I am trying to grown a pink variety, but they are still seedlings and the pesky white-fly have been feasting on them, so I’m not sure how they will survive.

Next photo is of some purple Penstemon, last week I featured pink ones, but these are very much a different shade. These are under the sunflowers and have been shaded from the scorching sun.

The Crocosmia have suffered in the dry, most of their leaves are brown and crisp, but I still have a reasonable amount of flowers despite the lack of rain.

Final photo goes to my cucumbers. These are just some of the fruit from this plant, it is enjoying the heat and humidity of the greenhouse, where it can rampage around. Much better than taking over my conservatory where I grew them in the past.

🌷Lots Of Pink And Purple Flowers In My English Country Garden Today. #SixOnSaturday #GardeningTwitter #Flowers 🌺🌼

Welcome to another gardening week from my Hampshire garden. This week temperatures have risen to the mid twenties; any rain we had has long gone and it’s rather dry in the garden once more. Yet there are still plenty of plants flowering.

Six Flowers for July 30th

Photo one is of this pretty Fuschia which has come back into bloom after the initial first flush. It was a gift for my husband who likes fuschias, not sure of the name, the label has gone.

The second photo is of the Himalayan Honeysuckle. I like the pink, purples and the dark berries that it produces. They always make me think of dangling ear-rings.

Third photo goes to these Penstemon, grown from seed and now dotted around the garden.

Fourth photo is of a Corncockle (I think) from the pack of wild flower seeds that I have grown. There were 26 varieties of wild seed in my pack, but I don’t think the germination rate was very good. If it is a Corncockle then other names for it are: cat’s eyes and kiss-me-quick, corn pink, crown of the field, little and pretty, poppy and Robin Hood.

Fifth photo goes to these French Marigolds, grown from saved seeds. Last autumn I gathered lots of Marigold seeds and I added them to Christmas cards as a ‘living gift’. They germinate really easily and make a bright show. I plant them in the greenhouse and among the vegetables to deter pets. Not convinced it works!

Own photo of French Marigolds

Finally a Gladioli, the first one from mixed bulbs planted this year. In fact there should be a whole host of summer bulbs, but it looks like only the glads have come through. Maybe the dry summer hasn’t helped?

Time to cool down after the high heats of Monday and Tuesday. There’s even been a welcome drop of rain. Let’s take a look and see what’s happening in my English garden this week.

Six photos from my garden

The first picture is of one of the ladybirds that I saw ‘hoovering’ up the black-fly on my beans – you go girl! Plenty more to eat ladies – please head to the dahlias next!

Following on from my ladybird spotting, I also found several ladybird larva, which is all a good sign that the ladybirds are happily breeding in my patch.

More happy campers; there’s a bumblebee on this, very out of focus, Button Snakewort (Liatris Spicata – I am so pleased that I labelled these bulbs when planting, it makes writing these posts much easier😜)

Photo four is of some Laurentia – ‘Blue Stars’ which are just coming into bloom. These were grown from seed this year from a free packet on the front on a gardening magazine. They were really easy to grow too, with good germination rates. A half-hardy annual.

Own photo of Laurentia Blue Star grown from seed

The dry weather has made ideal conditions for collecting seeds. I have Gazenia (hoping for more luck this year as I couldn’t get any to germinate from last year’s seeds). Tulip seeds from seed heads quickly gathered a few weeks ago and left to dry out. I also have English Marigolds, some Anemone seeds and some Sweet Williams. SoSer Noelle has also kindly sent me some of her Cyclamen seeds which I am looking forward to growing.

Final photo goes to this Grass Emerald Moth which had a rest in my conservatory. The markings are quite interesting. It is blue-green with a distinct black jagged line mid-way across the wings.

🐞Mini Beasties And Flowers From My English Country Garden for #SixOnSaturday #Gardening #Flowers

Another dry and hot week with temperatures rising well above what is comfortable for a British summer.

Nature does her thing and I keep watering the garden. Six on Saturday, let’s go!

Photo one is this lovely lemon coloured Valentine Sunflower. Small flowers but the colour is lovely.

Photo two is of some of the pretty Sweetpeas. These I grew from last year’s saved seed, I don’t remember this deep maroon last year, but maybe I wasn’t watching so closely as this year.

Third photo is of a Ladybird pupa. I spotted several of these in a variety of orange and red colours, along side mating Ladybirds on my purple Buddleja. The photo is a bit blurry as I was balancing on things to get a closer look.

Fourth photo is of this Monarda. My neighbour gave me this last year when she was dividing her own plants. I split mine in two and already have two growing.

Fifth photo is of a toad, which came to say hello when I was watering the bean pot. I saw this one or one similar in a flower bed a couple of weeks ago. He’s sitting in the drip tray and was hiding under a small leaf. I gave him a larger leaf and an upturned pot around the back of the pot for extra shade on these hot days. I really must move up my garden pond plans.

Last photo is of this white Buddleja. I love it’s honey scent, but I rarely see bees or butterflies on it. I see them on the purple one more often.

🌼Bountiful Flora From My English Country Garden For This Week’s #SixOnSaturday Meme. #GardeningTwitter #Flowers #Gardening

It’s dry, so much so that I am reminded of Jane Harper’s book The Dry. The forecast is for at least another ten days without rain. Lawns are brown and dust blows in the wind. Yet nature still has plenty to show and with daily watering, the flowers are blooming in my garden. This week I have several flowers which I don’t really know the names of. I’ve given them my ‘best guess’ but do let me know if you know what they are as I know that I still have lots to learn.

Photo two is of a flower from my white Dianthus (pinks), they don’t flower well for me after the first year. This one is just surviving.

Fourth photo goes to this Phlox with the delicate pink centre to the flowers.

Fifth photo is of these Penstemon which are just coming into flower. I’m growing some others from seed, but these ones have been in the front flower bed since we bought the house.

🌺What’s Growing In My English Country Garden? #SixOnSaturday #GardeningTwitter #Flowers

We’ve had another mini heat-wave of sorts after a massive drop in temperature last weekend. Saturday afternoon I was huddled under several layers of clothing and blankets while watching my son play cricket in temperatures 18° lower than they had been the day before.

Own photo of six flowers for June 25th

First photo of the week is of this lovely pink Dahlia. There’s no label on it, so it must be one that I over-wintered from last year. Originally bought from Sarah Raven.

Own photo of a pink Dahlia.

Second photo is of my sweetcorn which are flowering and forming cobs (hopefully). Last year I tried growing them on a whim from shop bought kernels. Only one grew, which isn’t really surprising and I was hopeful until I transplanted it and then it died😪 So I bought myself proper seed this year.

Own photo of sweetcorn
Sweetcorn

Third photo is of the plant that I have lazily called a bottle brush plant, however, that’s rather a generalisation and for this week’s SoS I have been diligently trying to find what it really is and I think that it is a Hebe (maybe White Wand) The honey bees love it. 🐝

Fourth photo doesn’t do the lavender colour justice, it is a lovely mauve at the moment.

Fifth photo is for the first of the Hollyhocks, they are one of my favourite cottage garden flowers. Mine suffer from rust, but I still enjoy growing them.

Last photo is of this red Poppy from some of my wild flower mixed seed packs. It won’t last long, so I snapped a photo while it was flowering.

😎Flaming June Has Arrived In My Hampshire Garden. #SixOnSaturday #GardeningTwitter #Gardens

This week the temperatures have been rising in my corner of England. Friday afternoon reached a hefty 30°c; too hot to be out in the garden working. I’ve been playing with some different photos of the garden, rather than the close up of flowers, I’m showing you a wider picture so you can glimpse more of the plot.

Six Photos of my garden for June 18th
Six Garden Photos For June 18th.

Let’s start with the flower bed which I created in the New Year. Much of our back garden is covered in Astro-Turf. Not a problem when we moved in as it meant no mowing, but now that we have been here three years, I am expanding my gardening plans. So new beds need to be cut out. Adding more areas for plants is a long-term project and one that I need to do in workable chunks. I had a drawn up planting plan for this bed, but some of the plants have done their own thing. For instance the green manure – purple tansy (Phacelia Tanacetifolia) is wildly taking over, but is covered in bees each day.

Own photo of my New Year garden bed.
New Year Bed

Along to the right of the New Year bed, is my Sunflower plot. As you can see, some of them are almost to the top of the fence. Some are in flower (I featured them a couple of weeks ago) The dwarf ones are looking like they will be next to flower.

Own photo of my Sunflower plot.
The Sunflower Plot

Back to the left of the first bed is a bed that was here when we moved in. I think it only had Sedum in it and weeds. I’ve added Marigolds, Foxgloves and Hollyhocks which I try to tie to an old iron gate that we found behind the garden shed. It is now hosting some of my potted Dahlias.

Own photo of a well established flower bed.
Established Flower Bed

Let’s cross the lawn now and this photo is of my current project. The Astro-turf has been laid for several years now and with next door being empty for at least five years, the trees in that garden have been spreading themselves out. There are several fast growing invasive ones and their tree roots are extensive. So much so that they are lifting our ‘lawn’. Although we now have new neighbours, the garden is not their priority and the tree roots are getting worse. So we are rolling back sections of the ‘turf’ and cutting back roots. Eventually I plan to have a lot more flower and vegetable beds, but I need to implement it in ‘doable’ sectors.

Own photo of a tree root project in the lawn
Tree root project

Photo five is of the flower bed I call my Easter project. We cut this one in around Easter. It is very shaded by the overhanging trees from next door. Recently the neighbour on the right had two large Cedar trees cut down and already this bed gets more evening light. I have more Dahlias here and Anemones, plus several more of the wildflowers that I’m growing.

Own photo of a flower bed dug at Easter
Easter Flower Bed

Last photo: There is a bumble bee at about 7 O’clock in the bird box entrance. When I was cutting back the Korean Spice plant in front of the box, a bumblebee was buzzing around, I didn’t take much notice apart from saying ‘hello’, then I noticed another one and I spotted it heading into the bird box. There were also tell-tale signs of yellow pollen dropped down the front of the box. I think they are the Buff-tailed ones which are all around the garden.

The second week in June and the evenings are still quite chilly. But the flowers are blooming and the bees are humming. Let’s get straight on with Six On Saturday.

Photo of Flowers for June 11th Six On Saturday

Photo one is of these gorgeous deep mauve (Or blue, or purple ) Anemones. My mixed pack are now really flowering well. I just need to keep the pigeons from dead-heading them, they especially like the red ones.

Two purple Anemone from my garden

Photo two is of the frothy Hawthorn flowers from a tiny bush in the front garden. I tried to take a close-up of the tiny flowers. They look all spotty this close up.

Photo of Hawthorne from my garden
Hawthorn

Next up is what I think is a Viburnum, although I’m not too sure. I’ve looked it up against the flowers and it is my best guess. I am guilty of chopping this back in other years thinking it was a self-seeder, which it might still be as it’s so close to a Cyprus that they vie for space.

Viburnum

Fourth photo is of the delicate pink tea rose which I split last year and overwintered in a pot with violas. Originally the rose was given as a house-warming pot plant three years ago and I have kept it alive. Both now are beginning to put on a good display with the violas coming back into flower after a feed..

Fifth photo is of another plant that I am guessing the variety of – I think this is a Chinese Privet. It hosts one of the Honeysuckles and both are now in flower.

Lastly the delicate blue flowers of the Borage, one of my wild plants that I’ve grown from seed for the pollinators. The flowers look almost bird-like with the centre seeming as if it is the head and beak of the flying bird.
