The Propagator has produced another list of plants, this time from Edinburgh. I hope he enjoys my City Garden list!
1. The Sedums are starting to colour. I think this one is ‘Indian Chief’. It is strong and produces enormous heads of flowers. I gave some of the plants the Chelsea chop and I will certainly do the same thing next year.
2.Molinia Caerulea ‘Transparent’ are waving around and absolutely gorgeous!
3.Carex Pendula is spreading itself around and somehow found its way into a pot of ferns – it has to go! There are several new plants in pots – fortunately a neighbour is looking for something rampant and so I am going to make her a gift of around a dozen plants, all self-sown.
4.Above the ferns an Ivy is draping over the pergola. It is starting to creep up the wall again and will need to be trimmed.
5.Corydalis also seeds and spreads quite happily. I found a few plants under the ivy, hidden in a corner with the Japanese Anemones. I let it spread because I like it and because it appears faithfully every year.
6.And finally I have a very odd colour Hydrangea. It started bright pink and now it is this sort of dirty pinky blue – is it sulking?
Those are my Six on Saturday – I hope you enjoy them!
