I haven’t spent much time in the garden over the past few weeks since giving birth, so I was delighted to venture out this week and find there was still lots of colour around. For week 40 of #ayearofbringingnatureinside I gathered some zinnias and astrantia and added some of the long pink flowers (but am not sure what they are). Please do comment if you are able to identify them for me.
I was particularly pleased to find the astrantia growing as they had gone over in August and after watching an episode of Gardener’s World we gave them a hefty trim. Fast-forward 6 weeks and they are blooming again. I am certainly going to be more confident with my pruning in future based on this success.
