Cut Flowers For The Summer
The Sweet Peas were planted in the cut flower bed at the end of April, see blog entry 29th April 'Sweet Pea Juliet, Anniversary and Apple Blossom'. Other plants have now joined them, but not before the bed had been thoroughly weeded by Emma, our Tuesday volunteer. Once weeded the following plants were planted: Sunflower 'Irish Eyes', Sunflower 'Teddy Bear', Zinnia elegans 'Giant Double Mixed', Antirrhinum majus 'Apple Blossom', Antirrhinum majus 'Royal Bride', Antirrhinum majus 'Orange Wonder' and Panicum elegans 'Frosted Explosion'. The Sweet William are still flowering so will be dug up and replaced by other plants for summer cut flowers once they have finished.
