The color AUTUMN in the garden is a small and big show.
Aloft, the color comes from the gorgeous field maps, the most purchased oak gold and one of the oldest species, Jingko Biloba.
I have previously visited this unique tree in the form of a statue, perhaps the largest of its kind on the White Island, in the Railway Brewery, said to have been returned to this country from its native China. .
Before its leaves were recently pruned by the gall, this tree looked glorious. Although very impressive, it is one of the oldest and most unusual trees in Kew Gardens that I visit whenever I can.
Gingko Biloba at Raid Railway Bar.
Commonly known as the hairy tree, it was planted in 1762. Although the hairy tree is as old as the garden, it is still young in terms of its lifespan.
The oldest tree, known as the unique way of growing its branches, is 3,500 years old. But do not throw it away. Great beauty does not just come with age.
Plant Gingko today and it may remain small for many years, but it will be a tree of great beauty at eye level and above, able to withstand a wide range of conditions.
On the ground, the bulbs give autumn and winter colors. Plant them under trees and shrubs to protect the spring crows from damage in wet weather.
Nerves are not a taste for everyone – beautiful and elegant in pink, I think. Nerine Bowdeni: Although South African origin is strong in the UK.
Nerves are beautiful in pink.
Sternberg is similar to a crocodile and is great for spraying in rockets. These light bulbs look good, especially in poor, poorly lit, large naturalized groups that have a significant impact on the sun.
Cyclamen hederifolium illuminates those shady, poor, areas under trees. The silver, marble, and petals follow the beautiful pink, white, or red flowers.
Cyclamen com is followed by a cousin who blooms in the fall. Fearing the cold winter weather, it has been popping up in Mainland UK since January, earlier this month. Down here White Island, one earlier.
Cyclamen com produces good results in winter.
Winter acorns’ golden and cup-shaped flowers brighten up the dark days surrounded by tree leaves.
Like the winter butterfly, it prefers moist soil and shady places, ideal for planting among forest trees. They appear to have grown up in bright waters, where they can be left to fend for themselves in the spring.
Snow drops? There are so many types to choose from!
Try Galanthus elwesii or Galanthus Woronowi with two large (well, large snowflakes) white snowflakes. Both have honey-scented flowers that appear in early January.
Galanthus nivalis Flore Pleno is a double-flowered species.
Snowflakes is one of Richard’s favorites.
A natural way to create snowflakes is to simply drop the bulbs into the plant and place them where they fall.
Snowflakes are a personal favorite, to be studied on the hands and knees, and the flowers are slowly tilted backwards.
Many species are shy, they hide many of their beauty – and tremble, in wisdom – on the ground.
Richard’s Best Tips
- Cool the greenhouse on hot days to reduce the risk of moisture and disease.
- Work your way through the boundaries of the greenhouse to prepare for next spring. Take some of the old soil first, leaving enough space to add new compost later.
- Distributed from underground cutters for many years, including Flax, Eastern Popes, and Mint.
- Water plants carefully to keep the atmosphere as dry as possible.
- Strawberries lose their productivity after three years, or more. Add a little blood to your bed.
- Build a clear polytetrafluoroethylene screen on coated coconut and honeycombs to protect against the wet winter weather of peach leaf fungus.
- Cover with winter netting to protect pigeons from pigeons.
- On cold evenings, keep your sheep’s hair out of the way to protect it from overcooked salads such as winter game lettuce, ground cream and lamb salad.
