This morning’s first proper frost got me looking around our garden and noticing how the mild weather recently has confused the flowering season. In our garden we have Scabiosa Pink Mist already in full flower which looks beautiful with a bit of frost on it as we wouldn’t usually see it until the summer. There’s also more confusion with the Solanum Jasmineoides blossoming much earlier than it should in late spring.

I am now going to watch as these plants correct themselves, or at least try to, and see their performance as they get back into their normal flowering patterns over the coming months – this could mean that they will flower for much longer than usual. They look lovely so I can’t complain about that!

Don’t forget there’s still a chance to grab a bargain in our Christmas Clearance event at Brimsmore Gardens which is running this weekend.
