A 1 year old pansy , we bought this plant a year ago as winter bedding, it flowered through out last winter and hopefully will do the same this year. If the plant is healthy as the end of the flowering season I tend to keep it in the soil, you never know , but it may just give you two years for the price of one!
I love Hebes , ever since I was small and my parents had a flower bed of them in the front garden. I love the shades of the flowers that contrast with the leaves. The wax crayon colour of the plants and the fact that they are so easy to grow and propagate. The added bonus is that some of them are still in flower at this time of year as well.
The Strawflowers are now starting to finish , the remaining ones are now forming seeds and the buds have stalled. They still provide colour and an insect refuge so I am keeping them in the garden at the moment.
We still have Raspberries to pick at the end of November , including some from a bush that we moved into the new fruit cage.This time of year we have to be really careful about washing them before eating as lots of insects use them for shelter!
