    Well we all have winter plants showing their best in autumn besides in the home and to see what members have would be delightful :)

    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.
