The maintenance jobs in the garden are piling up as the summer matures. The perennials need to be dead-headed and trimmed on a regular basis, and if also dead-headed the bedding annuals will continue their displays until the first frosts. Many of the new plants in the shade beds have bulked up nicely, and are preparing for a good performance next year. That is the joy of gardening; no mater how much of this year remains, there is always next year to look forward to.
An increasing number of plants will need lifting and dividing in September or October. One in particular, the yellow flowering lysimachia, a very generous perennial, has grown so well over the past two year that it is now about four times as large as when we planted it. We have promised parts of it to several friends, and also we are planning to put some of it in the extension to the long border, at the far end, where it will be like a lighthouse, drawing your eye with its bright foliage and sulphur yellow blooms. It is apparently a good food source for insects, especially butterflies. Two other plants we have which insects love are a sedum specabile, and echinops, or globe thistle. The latter is now past its best as far as the insects are concerned, but the sedum is just coming into flower. The flat heads of the sedum will be smothered with bees, hover flies, butterflies and many other flying insects. It is a really valuable food source in late summer when the creatures are filling up ahead of winter.
