THE GARDEN IN EARLY AUGUST - SIX ON SATURDAY
|Gertrude Jekyll Long Border in full swing|
2. Second up is the Long Border, which is hotting up as August gets underway. The blue grey haze at the far end of the border is the Eryngium photographed above. If you want to see more of the Long Border, and find out how the border relates to Gertrude Jekyll's colour theories, then there is more information Here.
|Clematis Purpurea Plena Elegans|
5 & 6. Finally for numbers 5 and 6 are two things in the vegetable garden which have done surprisingly well for me this year.
5. This is the first time I've tried Thompson and Morgan Climbing Bean Mixed and I'm really pleased with them. We've had plenty of beans which are in a pretty mixture of colours, and they taste good too.
That's the end of my selection for this week, but The Propagator who hosts Six on Saturday has plenty more for you to browse.
