    These are the only two " Bloom Chrysanthemums " ( as they're called ) I've got. Just one plant of each kept us in cut flowers from September until November last year, then the smaller sprays took over. We got these from Poundland but this year I'm going to get some from Parkers as they do all six types ( early, mid and late sprays and early, mid and late blooms ). This should keep us going from July through to January.

    Very nice I must say and lovely colours...my uncle used to bag the heads with brown paper bags and secure them with elastic bands but not to tight...apparently it helps them while opening up and stops any mites from destroying them...his front garden was plastered with them besides his back garden and he had one very long extended glass green house.

    Your Salix is indeed looking quite smart. Those are such attractive elements to have in a garden. Wood that my garden were larger.

    Thanks Sjoerd I have the two, the other is a bit small in roundness but the colour pink is bright this year..they need some heavy underneath growth removing as it helps generate them.

    Well while I've not been to good..my lovely hubby while out found another new garden centre up the road and purchased for young Acers for £5-99 each and he's put them either side of my lions on the back garden and as they mature slowly I hope to overlock them in time.

    Really nice pics Gail. I recognise a lot of old friends there. :)
    The lion looks like he's guarding the Acers.
    Is that a container full of mint I see there?
