The best Dahlias for cut flowers
Blue and White October Flowers

October in the Polytunnel

it's the change of the season.- The field still has Dahlias for the next week or two until the frost ( a couple of weeks please i've got some florists wanting them then) - and the statice, sedums and cosmos are going strong if the rain hasn't battered them today, - but it's at the beginning and the end of the year that the polytunnel really comes into play.

still picking from my polytunnel

Nerines, Cynoglossum, Antirrhinums, Lisianthus, Zinnias, Dusty Miller, Alstromerias, Gomphrena, Gerberas, Mint, Oregano Lavender - and still to come, lots of Chrysanthemums.

for overwintering, i've got Anemones, Ranunculus (a lot) Iceland poppies (although they're trying to flower already), Tulips, Hyacinths and Narsissus, plus herbs and Sweet peas.

On a morning like today, - i'm really glad i've got somewhere to retreat to in bad weather. - I guess it will be weed free by the end of the week.
