Your chrysanthemums are spectacular! Inspired me to get more next year. I didn't see many for sale this year so I'm guessing they were badly hit by the heatwave. So pretty!

@ublaszko oh I’m so happy to hear that! It’s the first year I’ve grown them and love them so much! Not bad either, 15 plants for £10 (they were little plugs though)

They look much better than mine! 😍 I wish I had a few more now to have some late autumn colour. I must say that's one if thr seasons I haven't planned for in my garden yet. Chrysanthemums are definitely on my wishlist for next year.

44w
comment
kez001uk

@ublaszko they really do provide blasting colour. A good few weeks I’ve had out of these, maybe a couple of months for the small ones. At least you have plenty of time to plan for next autumn 😉

44w
comment
ublaszko

😉👍 I think the heatwave had shortened the flowering season of some plants in my garden so hopefully it will be back to normal next year. I really want to get a purple smokebush for autumn colour and maybe another acer 😆 I have a secret plan to get an acer each year 😅😅😅

44w
comment
kez001uk

@ublaszko smokebush 🤤 they’re so beautiful 😍 and an acer a year is a good plan 😉 they do bring so much colour and interest. I say do it! 😛

Acers are so beautiful and I wouldn't even mind having multiples of the same plant 😂😉 I saw Wilko had a green one last year so I'll start from there. 😆😆

@natii it’s getting so cold here that I didn’t want to wait and risk being outside for hours in the rain and icy winds. It’s for the best I guess but just looks so bare 😂 still have a couple of surprises in flower but most is gone til spring now. Thank you, they’re still mostly looking good but they deteriorate fast 😜

Pretty grim. Frost has well & truly struck. Anything half hardy has bitten the dust 😑 It was always going to happen, as although we've had some mild winters, I've never known a frost-free one. On the bright side, everything in the greenhouse & indoors survived well, without water for 3 weeks 😊
