August on the nursery

 

Summer at The Mead

We are very glad to see many more butterflies and bees on the nursery than a few weeks ago. Our Teucrium hedge is flowering which is always a magnet for bees, especially bumble bees. Watching them on the flowers is like watching a dance, it warms the soul.

The grasses are beginning to come into their own now, adding a good upright dimension to a border and making a perfect foil for more colourful plants.

No need to have a gap in flowering in your borders in August which can often happen. The saleable plants are looking very colourful at the moment. Why not visit the nursery to see what you could put in your borders to add some mid to late summer interest?
