We’ve cleared the half-bed which was full of gladioli – which isn’t the bed we actually have the gladioli in, LOL! But it had come up of its own accord – so obviously we hadn’t cleared it as well as we thought last year!
Anyway, we’ve had a go at it now, though we have left one gladiolus in which is still due to flower:
And here are the gladioli which we’ll keep for next year:
And here are the last of the daffodils we have just about to be planted. I was pleased that most of the ones I’d messed up the storage for (by accidentally putting them in a pot with no drainage holes, sigh!) were fine – which just goes to show that Nature can cope with most of the nonsense I throw at her, thank goodness!
In other flower news, one of the gladioli which is actually in the bed it SHOULD be in is in flower:
The asters and dahlias are doing marvellous things:
And, much to our surprise, the chrysanthemums are just coming into flower – and I thought they’d all died out last year!
Here is the harvest, which includes asters, one gladiolus, rudbeckia, dahlias, one sunflower and one sweet pea, plus French beans, mangetouts and beetroots:
Here are the vases at home:
Have a great Sunday, everyone.
