Through the Garden Gate September 2019

Having recently returned from a holiday in Portugal and with a storm brewing I have rushed in the garden to take some pictures, so hopefully you won't notice that the garden is not up to its usual standard!

This weekend marks five years since we moved here, where does the time go?

Following last month's storms the fencing blown down has now been repaired and strengthened, which allowed us to create a new border and visit the garden centre for a spending spree. Three weeks on the plants have taken to their new home and grown so fast!

It was also an excuse to fit another rose in the garden, the scent of the Gertrude Jekyll was just too good to resist!

The Michelmas daisies are providing such intense colour in the garden.

The apples are continuing to ripen but aren't quite ready to pick.

The grapes are definitely ready to pick. I'm afraid this will be another year to miss out on making wine, due to lack of time available. Grape juice is quicker and easier to produce as it doesn't need so much nurturing.

What are the highlights in your garden this month?
It is always wonderful to see other gardens and watch their development during the year. If you want to join in with Through the garden gate each month please let me know in the comments below and I will add your site, it is always fantastic to see a range of gardens from all around the world, and share our love of gardening.


  1. Despite you being away your garden is looking wonderful and much more mature. The Michaelmas daisies are a glorious colour. Apples all picked here. It’s been a good year for them. I’m very envious of your grapes. B x

  2. I harvested lots of tomatoes and cleared out the patch. All that remains in the produce garden now is kale.

    Your apples and grapes look delicious!

  3. I wish our cottage garden looked as good when we haven't been for a while. All the mauve and purple flowers look lovely this time of year. All those grapes - wonderful. x

  4. That Gertrude rose is outstanding! An English garden is such a wonderful sight to see, even if the end of the season is upon it!

  5. Also playing catch up after 3 weeks away. Your gate will be my next post.

  6. Thank you for including a link to my end-of-September view, Sarah. You are right, we do have quite a few plants in common. My roses will never compare with yours though. Your September garden is lovely! P. x

  7. Believe me when I say, your garden looks awesome!

    Please add my miserable garden to the list links. Life isn't always perfect.


  8. I do so understand the problem of lack of time! Yet another month when the garden has passed me by almost completely. I hope to be a better participant before too much longer!
    I love the colours of autumn, so intense. Wish winter didn't have to follow it.

  9. One more looking back to last month when we were mostly away

  10. This month I am ready
