Plant of the Month
September 11, 2019 by James Cooper
I strongly believe that late summer/early autumn can be the most fantastic time in the garden. Once the heat of summer gives way to cool mornings and the start of heavier dews some plants really start to shine. This month we have opted for a trio of plants which stand out for their contribution to the garden scene at the moment.
Firstly the Rosa ‘Little Rambler’ is firmly one of our favourite climbing roses, for it’s delicate charm and easy maintenance – definitely our desert island rose.
The Aster frikartii ‘Monch’ combines well with the rose and helps to give a little zing to the border.
Finally, where would we be without the Salvia officinalis ‘Icterina’ a beautiful, evergreen sage to add a useful splash of yellow.
So, prolong the impact plants can make in your garden and try this easy, rewarding trio.
