End of June

As June turns into July the garden is once again beginning to look jungly. The Cannas looks like Cannas and not abused leeks, the banana trees are looking majestic and the Tetrapanax do again look like they could take over the world.

NGS garden opening is in full swing and there are loads open all over the place with good reports of openings in Winterton and London. Gardening has also changed from manic pulling out of forget-me-nots to watering whilst wearing shorts and cutting rampant things back

So an end of the month wander

 
Helianthus salicifolia doing its thing

 
Tetrapanax and day lily


 
Greenhouse still rather full of plants that need to go out....somewhere

 
Paulownias suddenly shooting in the heat

 
end bed planted out with Ricinus and Dahlias



 
Shooting bamboos, large Ensete in the planter surrounded by fuzzy red salvias


 
Bottom pond bed with growing gingers, cannas and mus



 
and finally the terrace.....huge Musa sikkimensis with the new leaves of Schleffera macrophyllya looking fabulous
