September is here.

Although September has arrived, we still have a good show of nasturtiums in the garden. The hanging basket is nearly over, but some of the seeds have dropped off and taken root in the soil beneath and these are flowering in abundance just now.  We don't eat the flowers nor the leaves, although both are edible, but the lovely colours give much joy in the garden at the moment.

I've managed to save a lot of bulbs, which have been dried off in the shed and on the lawn and kept, to replant this month.  Each year I buy new bulbs, but also mix in some older ones.  Some of them are immature and will not flower for a year or two yet, but each year, I plant them so they can get a bit bigger.

We usually plant daffodils in September and tulips in October.

Have you got your bulbs ready yet?

Happy Gardening!
