The Delargo Gardens - September

We are back me darlins with our second post this month as September ebbs away and with it the last flush of Summer 

 It has been a challenging Summer for our little garden with scaffolding and all manner of works going on but we are still looking good. 
The salvias' have hit there stride. including 'Salvia coccinea' which we grew from seed this Spring

Salvia 'Amistad'

 Salvia guaranitica 'Blue Enigma'

 Salvia uliginosa

 Salvia patens “Patio Deep Blue”

 They and the self-seeded Agastache are still keeping the bees happy

Now me dears it's time for a quick tour of the estate. I was dead chuffed with the response to me fuchsia post. They have been fab all year and the fuchsia walk is a joy

 My early morning spot

 Looking up towards -

 The top garden

 Our bench has been commandeered as we prepare the pots ready for Spring bulb planting


It's been a good year for the thumbergia alata this is African sunset mix.

 Not a good year for the Ipomoea lobata (Spanish Flag) but then Monty Don has struggled with his this year.

 Our dahlia is still giving us a nice splash of colour

 as are these

Last year our local garden centre gave us some half dead mouldy Cyclamen persicum, they are looking very healthy this year and have started to flower.

There we are then me lovelies. We are past the solstice and the clocks will be going back soon but we will still be busy clearing, sorting, getting ready for Winter and of course planting and planning for Spring.

Do pop in next month to see what we have been up to

Delargo Towers Fuchsia Fest 2019

Here we are then me lovelies with a round up of this years Fuchsias here at 'Delargo Towers'.
I have been promising to this for a few years now and it is rather a shame I have not. Our Fuchsias have looked wonderful this Summer but do not always get the attention they deserve in me monthly garden posts. I hope this will make amends, perhaps I should compile an annual catalogue from now on.
