Through the Garden Gate October 2018
The weather in October can be so varied and this can have quite an effect in the garden. This month we have sunshine and high temperatures, rain and strong winds and twice this week have had a hard frost, luckily I managed to take these pictures the day before.
Leaves are falling
However some plants still think it is summer, such as this honeysuckle and rose.
The cutting border is still full of colour with cosmos, marigold and dahlias. I love this combination of colours at this time of year. My daughter always buys me some dahlia bulbs for my birthday in February, this one below has such a huge head, isn't it fantastic?
In the vegetable garden only one carrot came up, we accidentally let it go to seed, and look what happened! I have been picking these lovely flowers,combining them with flowers from the cutting patch. It has worked so well that I think I might do this again next year!
