When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Sedum Spectabile

A friend wants to see what I have in my garden that is giving it some colour at this time of year. So here goes… #floweringinoctober

I suppose if the daffodils are in flower it’s probably time to cut back the #hylotelephium-spectabile 🙄 (That doesn’t exactly slip off the tongue does it?!)

I cut back my Sedum this week Jacqueline, I’ll never call them by that other name it’s too complicated to say, let alone remember 🤣

Hi Sarah! No, sadly not (though I will be for a few days from tomorrow). I’m currently sat in the car in Morrison’s car park! We have a rubbish mobile signal at home and a week ago some (expletive deleted) crashed into and set fire to the telegraph pole that carries our landline and internet 😡 Will get back on GT when BT-dont-reach-very-far get their act together @sieveheadsarah
