REETH COMMUNITY ORCHARD
Apples are ripening while the garden takes on a burst of colour.
Helianthus in the hot border, - a dependable favourite perennial flowering well into the autumn.
Cosmos (Mexican Aster) have excelled themselves this year. Sarah Raven says: Cosmos are stacked full of nectar and pollen, making them great for creating a wildlife friendly garden. They produce more bunches of flowers from a square metre than any other plant, so are brilliant for growing your own cut flowers.
Good choice Eileen & co!
Butterfly Heaven. Peacock, Red Admiral and Tortoiseshell, with bees, all enjoying the nectar on the sedum.
A look of consternation? Perhaps he’s spotted the Flame Creeper on the wall of the Old Privy ! (Tropaeolum speciosum).
However did this lobelia cardinalis find its way into the Cool Border?
