‘Is it still summer?’ I have never known it so mild! It’s always a bit warmer than the rest of the UK here in London, but with temperatures regularly in the high teens, the garden didn’t know if it was coming or going! The autumn colours were spectacular and a trip to RHS Wisley in Surrey for the Apple Festival was a great way to enjoy the autumn season.

Narcissus - Distinctive Gardener

These Narcissi had been grow in a plastic pot and just plopped into a terracotta pot.I have planted loads of daffodils and tulips in plastic pots this year and it makes it easy to plant them where you want in borders and pots nearer to flowering time. It also stops them being dug up out of the ground by the pair of squirrels who live in our pine tree!
