Looking good in the garden - 26 September 2007 - Autumn

Each month we look at some of the plants in the garden that visitors may be interested in finding. Their location in the garden is provided.


Acanthus mollis/ bearís breeches
With handsome shiny leaves and bold flower spikes, these plants make a striking contribution to the electrical sub-station bed.


Myrtus communis "Variegata"/common myrtle
A small bush with cream/white variegation to its leaves and 1 inch wide saucer-shaped fragrant white flowers with a prominent boss of thin stamens and attractive variegated foliage. Growing in one corner of the square lawn.


Dianthus and Lavandula nana atropurpurea "Hidcote"
A pretty combination around the bird bath feature which has proved very popular with our feathered visitors. In a small bed on the main lawn behind the yew hedge.
