Tonight's programme is all about adding late summer colour to your garden and in preparation I thought I'd list some top summer colour plants that will keep your garden looking beautiful throughout the season:
Helenium 'Waltraut' Sneezewort
Eryngium × zabelii 'Jos Eijking' Sea Holly
Helenium 'Goldfuchs' Sneezewort
Echinacea 'Pixie Meadowbrite' Coneflower
Salvia guaranitica 'Blue Enigma'
Argyranthemum gracile 'Chelsea Girl' Marguerite
Kniphofia 'Tawny King'
Monarda 'Gardenview Scarlet' '
Salvia × sylvestris 'Mainacht' Wood sage
Veronicastrum virginicum 'Fascination'
Anemone hupehensis var. japonica 'Pamina'
Also on tonight's show Toby will be visiting the RHS Gardens in Harlow Carr to learn more about late flowering summer perennials. Alys will be providing more useful gardening tips as she demonstrates the simple steps involved in making an edible window box. Joe will be planting colourful borders at the garden he's been working on in Birmingham and Carol will be visiting Forster Park Primary School to see how their vegetables are progressing.
Are your gardens bursting with summer colour? Why not use our Flickr group to share the summer colour in your gardens.
That's all for now, enjoy your gardening weekend.
