As usual, September is a most glorious month in the garden here at Hayefield. I could spend all day just wandering around with my camera. Looking through the images from the last few weeks, though, I realized that the garden pictures look pretty much like they do every other year. Rather than repeating the same garden views from previous Septembers, I thought I’d focus just on the plants–particularly those I haven’t shown before (at least this year), to keep things interesting. So, here are some highlights, starting with the annuals.
This has been a banner year for my annual vines, too.
A sampling of September perennials…
And finally, a few woody plants…
Looking back over the growing season, I still have a bit of regret that I didn’t keep up with things in the garden as well as I usually do, but the plants have been generous with seeds anyway. Since July, I’ve spent at least an hour a day collecting, and now I’m busy cleaning and packing them. My goal is to have my Etsy shop fully restocked by late October, so the next few weeks are going to be pretty hectic. Instead of doing an October Bloom Day post, I’m planning to start writing about some of my seedy favorites each month through the winter. There are just so many cool plants that deserve more attention! I’ll see you again next month; in the meantime, I wish you all a beautiful autumn (or spring) in your own garden.
I am passionate about collecting and growing seeds. In the links below, you can find out more about why I started my own one-person seed company and how it works. The library page is a collection of articles I've written on seed-related topics.
